Three things most people would be surprised to learn about me are:
I have been to 40 out of 50 states
I have ridden in a hot air balloon
I can only snap with my right hand.
My favorite children’s book is…several different ones! I love to read and loved so many books as a child. Some of my favorites were Little House on the Prairie, Anne of Green Gables, A Wrinkle in Time, and Harry Potter. I love these books because they make me feel a part of times long ago, things I’d never heard of and places I’ve never been.
Today’s book recommendation, Little Cloud and Lady Wind, is based on a fable by Aesop and tells the story of a cloud that learns all of the beauty she brings to Earth! Read the book and then download our free activity book to write a fable!
