Sophie Scott goes South by Alison Lester

Sophie is nine, and she is going on an icebreaker ship to the South Pole, Mawson Station, and back. This is her journal, packed with wonder, great facts and lots of fun drawings.
This is my favorite picture that she did of the ship. .

Do you remember doing this? Your shovel in hand, and maybe that special pair of boots with just your bare feet inside....
This is one of my all time favorite books for that wee crowd of explorers! A great introduction to geology too!

"...up from behind, a snowshoe rabbit pulled alongside Henry.
"Think you're fast?" Said the rabbit. "Wanta drag?" "Yow me-yowl!"
Slide and glide, for thirty seconds Henry raced with the rabbit, and then the rabbit disappeared over the hill..."
Cross-Country Cat by Mary Calhoun, illustrated by Erick Ingraham
This is what it's like for me these days, out there with all those young ones zipping by☺️ #nordicskiing #springcreeker #ilovenordic #winterbooks

"It seemed like Mother Nature was sure agreeable that day when the little black colt came to the range world, and tried to get a footing with his long wobblety legs on the brown prairie sod."
Such a great read aloud! It is fun to be in Smoky's world and learning with him.
This is a 1929 edition, put out by Charles Scribner's Sons. Beautifully illustrated by Will James also.

An amazing story that brings to light what life might be like for all the refugees in detention centers around the world. It is a harsh existence, yet the story is about family, friendships, the power of imagination, and hope.
This story begs to be read aloud, the voices are so clear, and there is so much to be felt within the story. 
It's on my read-aloud list!

It is winter, and has been for a very long time. The Frost Giants have taken control of the land, through trickery, from the Gods of Asgard. It is Odd, this unlucky and different boy, who takes the lead and helps Thor, Odin, and Loki win back control, so the seasons can come again.
This is my kind of great read aloud. A great story from Norse Mythology, rewritten by Neil Gaiman, and amazing illustrations by Chris Riddell, a very descriptive illustrator.

A sweet picture from the beginning of "The Winter Book". It so depicts how we feel as the snow keeps falling, and you realize that the "cold" is truly here! This is a great book that stretches easily through the winter season. Pick it up, read some, sing some...look at the picture stories... then find it again for the next phase of winter .... it is brilliant!

"When the days become cooler and the skies are gray with rain, or even the first hint of snow, it's the perfect time to curl up with a good book. Dip into this rich multicultural treasury and you will find stories, songs, poems, illustrations, facts...all sorts of things to accompany you all winter long, until spring begins to unfold."

So many picture books have amazing artwork that inspire my creativity. This is one that I pulled off my shelf yesterday. I don't have high level sewing skills, but I love coming up with ideas and working out how to make them happen!
