{Five Favorites} and {WWRW} Artie and the Princess

Linking up with Camp Patton (filling in for Moxie Wife) on Five Favorites and throwing in a dash of What We're Reading Wednesday from over in House Wife Spice's neck of the woods.


Sweet Pea rocking this shirt I made a million (or 7) years ago for Little Bean.  Love handmade hand-me-downs!  Note that I bedazzled it, like a good mother :)  I also love that her cloth diaper is hilarious when paired with leggings. 


After many, many, many hot and dry weeks - there is rain on my sidewalk today.


This little gem came in the mail today - Little Bean's homeschool ID card - complete with school name that tips the hat to her love of mythology :)


I love how much she loves to read - in first grade, I really couldn't have pictured this.  Thank you God, for whoever gave me the advice to let her blossom on her own with reading.

Which leads to.......


Since my life has been all work and no play, I have a guest writer for this last favorite - Little Bean's web debut as she reviews Artie & the Princess by Marjorie Torrey.

What was this book about?
This book is about a dragon who needs a playmate, so he goes off in search of a playmate.  He goes across the forest and sandy plains and finds a mountain.  He climbs it and at the top he meets Princess Pandy. They become playmates.  One day, a prince arrives and is mean to the princess, so Artie spanks him.  This starts a lot of problems.  In the end, they work it out and live happily ever after.

What did you like about it?
I liked how the king always said at the end of talking about things he hadn't done, "although someday I will."

What didn't you like about it?
When Artie spanked the prince, he didn't even put him in timeout.  

Who should read this book?
I would recommend this book to other kids my age (8), especially my cousins.  This is a book for people who like adventures and fantasy.

Thanks LB - we'll count that as your book report for the week :)  I'm starting My Sisters the Saints after Sweet Pea goes to bed tonight - can't wait to review it soon!

Head over to Camp Patton to read more Five Favorites and House Wife Spice for more What We're Reading Wednesday.
