New Story Time – Billie B Brown – The Little Lie

Lately Minime has been more interested in her chapter books than others.  It means our private story times last that much longer as she wants me to read the whole book and isn’t into the idea of waiting until tomorrow to see what comes next (even when she has heard the story 986,596 times before).

I usually can talk her into doing a short story for our Youtube storytime but not today.  Today she insisted on Billie B. Brown.  I completely get it.  Billie is a really cool, adventurous and brave girl.  She gets herself into some predicaments but always finds a way out.

I knew reading the book would take too long and lose some of our younger readers attention so I decided to break it up into one chapter per storytime episode.  What do you think?

Anyway, as always the book is available for sale on my Usborne Books and More Website.

Youtube StoryTime – Ten Gorillas

This week’s #Youtubestorytime is very very rough.  It’s one of our new books that I bought during our Book Friday sale.  It’s a great book for teaching counting by tens.  It even throws in a random number to make sure you are paying attention.

We recorded a little before nap time this week which meant we only got one take.  It’s rougher than usual but Mini me insisted that I post it and didn’t want to try again.

Just a reminder moms and dads, life doesn’t always have to be perfect to be just right.

Hope you enjoy our rendition (and my mispronouncing words) of Ten Gorillas.  Get your copy today on my Usborne Books site, Shop Bradshaw.

Monkey Day!!!

monkey friends

“Monkey is going for a walk. Along the way he meets a friend. Can you guess who it is, and who he’ll meet next? There might be some clues in the pictures!  Rich, detailed illustrations and a rollicking, rhyming text combine in this animal-themed picture-book guessing game.

Readers of all ages will enjoy this brand-new split-page adventure from the acclaimed Ruth Brown, packed full of animal friends to discover!”

Who doesn’t love monkeys???

Book Friday Sale

I hope everyone had a wonderful day.  Whether you celebrate the holiday or not I think it is important to take time out of your day everyday to say thank you to the universe for the life you get to live.

I had a wonderful day with family.  Mini me is knocked out after spending the day running around like only a two year old can.  Now I am counting down the minutes (19 left as I type this) for our Usborne Book Friday Sale to start.

If you like me avoid stores but love sales check out my site and get some amazing deals on some of our favorite titles.  The sale last until Monday night.
