Today we hosted our very first mother-daughter book club of the summer. You may not know this about me, but I'm a bit of a stressed entertainer, but Abby and Sophie are not. They thought this was SOOO fun to prepare for...which in turn erased all of my stress as well. If you have never read the 2013 Newbery winner, "The One and Only Ivan" you should. It is a phenomenal book. We had about 13 people at our house and we explored the book through two awesome art projects, banana cupcakes, and lively discussion. It was so fun to hear the girls' insights about the book.
