❄ Winter Is Here ❄

Happy Tuesday and Happy First Day of Winter!

What’s your favorite winter activity?

I’m happy it’s winter, also known as the curl-up-with-a-good-book season. Winter is my favorite season next to autumn.

I don’t have a particular favorite winter activity that I like doing. I like looking out at the world blanketed in snow. Everything just looks so pretty. Snow is fine as long as I don’t have to shovel it. That is a chore my back is not up to anymore.

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing my winter tbr along with another review to share for 25 Days of Book Reviews (which became more like posts when I can 😂).

Have a great day, everyone!


As Always, Happy Reading!!!

Book Review: The Magic of Friendship Snow by Andi Cann

Image via Goodreads

Genre: Picture Books, Children’s Fiction
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐☆☆
Recommend to Others?: Yes

ABOUT: Jojo doesn’t know how to make friends. Then, she meets Puddles, the snowman. The discovery of a best friend is a precious gift of childhood.

Jojo looks around and everyone seems to have friends but her. She feels sad and lonely. How do you make a friend? Once you find a friend, how do you BE a friend? Then, Jojo meets Puddles, the snowman made with magic snow.

Learning to be a friend can be difficult. Jojo will reassure children that friendship can be learned. Discover how Jojo makes a forever friend.

 

My Review: The Magic of Friendship Snow is a good story about how hard it is to make friends. Jojo is a little girl who wants friends like everyone else, but doesn’t know how to make a friend no matter how hard she tries. The reader learns that they should keep trying, be kind, and always be themselves like Jojo and Puddles.The best part of the story were the beautifully painted illustrations. So gorgeous!

Bookish Memes Top 10 Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Winter 2020-2021 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme originally created by The Broke and the Bookish, but is now run by That Artsy Reader Girl.


Happy Tuesday, Bookworms!

What books are you most looking forward to reading in 2021?

This will be my last Top Ten Tuesday post of 2020. I’ve enjoyed doing this posts throughout the year and reading other blogger’s lists. There have been some really cool prompts and I look forward to continuing this series in 2021.

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is: Books On My Winter 2020-2021 TBR.

I usually don’t do a winter tbr and usually don’t post one until January (but maybe I’ll start doing one). So for this list I chose some of my most anticipated, priority reads in the beginning of 2021.
