A Maisy Weekend

The clouds are hanging low here in NH but in our house it's sunny because our almost-three-year-old granddaughter, Kylie, has come to play with us.

We went to Wonderland Book Store and picked out two new Maisy books. This one has stickers that you have to place on different beach scenes. Even though Kylie loves stickers, she isn't crazy about this book. I think it's because there is no story to it. Once the stickers are put into place, there really isn't much to do with it.

This is her new favorite! Maisy and Talllulah are playing hospital. Panda is sick so they have to take his temperature then Maisy puts him to bed. On her way back downstairs, she's going too fast and crashes into Tallulah. Nurse Tallulah has to wrap her nose in a bandage.

We've read this one at least ten times. Kylie is always saying, "Can we read Maisy and the temperature?"

As far as my own reading this weekend, it's pretty much nonexistent. I'm still working on Testimony by Anita Shreve. The first chapter was riveting but after that it was kind of blah for awhile. Fortunately, it has picked up now that I'm about halfway through.

Enjoy your reading, everyone!

How sweet Linda, reading with Kylie. I always love Kylie stories. That is so cute-can we read Maisy and the temperature-it makes me smile. Glad you had a nice weekend with her.

It sounds like you had a very nice weekend, Linda, with Kylie. She's so lucky to have you.

I hope your reading picks up this next week. I had hoped to get some reading done today, but somehow it did not happen. I'll devote all day tomorrow to reading, I think. Yeah, right. :-)
