A few days ago I mentioned that I made Eid goodie bags for my girls as we drove 2 hours to see family fairly early in the morning. This is one of the books that was in Little One's (3 year old) goodie bag. She absolutely loves these play felt books but this one is particularly cute. Just look at those illustrations. There are prompts on each page or you could play it however you wish to. Great for imaginative play, storytelling and heaps of fun. This is one of the books I recommended for books to use when out and about with children. To see more of this book and other recommendations click on the link in my profile. 🙂
Copa literária! Vamos pro 2° jogo: ⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️ 1. O EGITO ANTIGO PASSO A PASSO, de Aude Gros de Beler, editora Claroenigma.
O Egito antigo desperta, até hoje, muita curiosidade entre as pessoas do mundo inteiro. Neste novo título da coleção Passo a Passo, os leitores descobrirão informações surpreendentes do cotidiano dos egípcios — que não era feito só de pirâmides e faraós!
No vale fértil do rio Nilo, alguns milênios atrás, viviam os antigos egípcios. Se, por um lado, todos nós conhecemos as pirâmides, os nomes de alguns deuses e faraós e a escrita hieroglífica; por outro, sabemos muito pouco sobre o dia a dia naquela época. Como será que eram as profissões? E a educação das crianças? O que eles faziam para se divertir?
Este livro, escrito por uma egiptóloga, vai revelar todas essas respostas, além de trazer outros detalhes surpreendentes sobre a vida dessa civilização, que deixou tantas heranças no mundo em que vivemos hoje.

You may think I’m kidding. I’m not! Parties combined with education create just the right conditions for learning and loving. Isn’t that why you brought your kids home? Take a chance and embark on the kind of homeschool you dreamed of when you began.

Think this castle 🏰 needs a guard 🛡 dog⁉ ... But on second thought, considering the torture equipment 🗡⚔ ⛓ displayed inside, maybe I'd rather just be on the outside. Glad I wasn't born in the Middle Ages. Phew!
@kidlitexchange #partner Thank you #kidlitexchange for sharing a review copy of this book.
Ok so I HATE ‘potty talk’ when it is inappropriate and ridiculous. It is a big topic because I have a 4 and 6 year old... I was a little nervous about Potty Music by Guido Van Genechten! 💫 I was pleasantly surprised when reading this book. It is definitely all about potty noises and creating a concert with the animals’ noises, but it is entertaining and funny. My kids LOvED pressing the sound buttons on each page. They are not gross sounds as I expected. It is more like music! We enjoyed how each character has its own specific sound. The illustrations are very cute too! 💫I enjoyed this book, and my kids laughed throughout! Check out my stories for a preview. .

Edwidge Danticat’s 2015 picture book chronicles the story of a young girl, Saya, whose mother is sent to an immigration detention center while she remains at home with her father. The story is told from Saya’s perspective and it’s a heartbreaking tale. But there is a happy ending, and it’s one that we can work towards for all families.

Day 12: An inanimate object.
Totally running out of idea for this ;w; So just try to capture the planning scene of mine every sunday, with a empty mug (always not drinking enough water) xD #starias#starias_art
“You guys know about vampires? … You know, vampires have no reflections in a mirror? There’s this idea that monsters don’t have reflections in a mirror. And what I’ve always thought isn’t that monsters don’t have reflections in a mirror. It’s that if you want to make a human being into a monster, deny them, at the cultural level, any reflection of themselves. And growing up, I felt like a monster in some ways. I didn’t see myself reflected at all. I was like, “Yo, is something wrong with me? That the whole society seems to think that people like me don’t exist?" And part of what inspired me, was this deep desire that before I died, I would make a couple of mirrors. That I would make some mirrors so that kids like me might see themselves reflected back and might not feel so monstrous for it.”

Nouvelles venues dans notre petite bibliothèque anti-sexiste, « Vives & Vaillantes » de Praline Gay-Para chez @didierjeunesse , une collection de contes où les héroïnes sont non seulement vives et vaillantes, mais aussi rusées, dégourdies, indépendantes, persévérantes, justes, pleines d’imagination, bienveillantes, et finalement, heureuses.
Atrasados, mas prontos pra leitura, Opa! Pra jogar!
Vi copas literárias nos IGs @encontrodeleitores e @companhiadasletras.
Então vou colocar nossos livros em campo também.
1.AS MAIS BELAS PÁGINAS DA LITERATURA ÁRABE de Mansour Challita, editora Record (livro da minha infância-Gi) Neste volume encontram-se reunidas admiráveis páginas que revelam a presença de uma cultura universal e são a expressão original de seus filósofos, teólogos, naturalistas, humanistas, contistas, poetas, pensadores, matemáticos, geógrafos e historiadores. Todos tão vivos hoje quanto há quinze séculos atrás. Um enriquecimento para a mente. Uma visão de beleza para a alma.
2. DI-VEROSOS RUSSOS da Tatiana Belinky, editora Scipione.
Numa linguagem simples,mas divertida, os poemas deste livro tratam de questões do cotidiano; as notas ruins de Joaquim, o pequeno vira-lata Totó ou o burrinho que nasceu no zoológico. As belíssimas ilustrações também revelam características da cultura russa. Além dos poemas traduzidos, o livro conta também com uma pequena biografia de cada autor.

Dunno what it's like drawing a scene like this but as one of the writers, these calm-before-the-storm moments are such evil fun to write because you know what's coming next...
