31 Days of Halloween!

I was doing my usual blog-stalking the other night when I ran across a blog called "the nesting place". The author, Myquillan, invited bloggers old and new, to stretch their writing skills by committing to posting a blog a day, every day, throughout the month of October. The topic could be anything at all, for one month. Of course I had to attach it to books, teaching, crafts, food, and fun (all combined, in my experience) so here it is...31 Days of Halloween!                                
Welcome to Day 1- Oct. 1, 2014
My first book:

This is a lovely book that won the Kate Greenaway Medal. It is a story about a cat, a duck, and a squirrel who live together in harmony, sharing jobs like making delicious pumpkin soup together. All goes well until Duck decides that he is no longer satisfied with his job (putting in a pipkin of salt.)The others will not allow him to change his job, and Duck runs away. Now it is no longer peaceful in the little white cabin...

This is an awesome book to start the month of October with. First, it involves pumpkins, so nobody can say you are not seasonal. However, it is really a magical book about getting along, sharing the work, and caring about others more than yourself. Always good themes to revisit with little people!

 Happy Reading! More tomorrow!   Nancy
