All this week at the girls school there is a Book Fair and the theme in every classroom is Bedtime Stories. So I thought Why Not post what we are reading as our bedtime story. With girls 7,5,and 4 they have somewhat outgrown, I should say have memorized, Dr. Seuss for a night time story and I usually end up reading two or three. I know, can we say push over?!? That is when I decided to read them a fairly large chapter book, you know something that would take a few weeks to get through. For the first one we picked out The Sisters Grimm The Fairy-Tale Detectives by Michael Buckley. Pumpkin and I picked this up at the library and since they loved it so much I broke down and bought the paperback for our Little Mochi library. We have made it to chapter four and the girls love it! It is a tiny bit scary for Pumpkin and there are parts that are "make me laugh out loud funny"! It is so much fun for me to see the girls when I use "my" British and Grandma voice, they think it is great and it really brings them into the story a bit more. I am so happy with this book it has sisters, fairy tale characters, mystery, and an eccentric Granny. Come on! What more can a little munchkin want in a bedtime story. The one thing that I LOVE, four girls snuggled into a bed giggling and getting a little frightened as we follow the Grimm Sisters on their adventure.
I am a stay at home mom looking to make the most of this adventure by trying my hand at photography, crafts, cooking, and teaching Japanese to the girls. Most importantly to make wonderful memories and bring back traditions with my three amazing daughters.
