I hope you're having a lovely Monday!
Over the weekend, I had some time to experiment with my blog graphics a little bit...I hope things don't look too different this morning ;) I've been intending to switch to more of a fixed header ever since I began blogging at this address, and just haven't gotten around to it, until now.
I'm sure I'll be changing/moving things around over the next week or two, until everything settles into a layout that I'm comfortable with, so please bear with me in the meantime.... :)
I stumbled on this book when I was looking for resources for our "E" unit in Alphabet Time...and it has quickly become a new favorite of ours! I thought I would share this little treasure with you, in case you may be looking for something like it, for your own bookshelf. :)
The egg is one of the main themes in our unit, since it fits very nicely into our spring nature and art studies. I was delighted to find all three subjects covered in these pages - and so charmingly done!
Aren't these colors just beautiful? The artist put so much detail into each little thumbnail, and my kids have been fascinated with comparing the different eggs...and identifying the eggs of all the birds we see in our yard.
In many ways, it's like a child's field guide...but I love the way the author points out elements of beauty and artistic interest in these little things of nature.
The cheerful, sweet artwork has definitely captured my children's (and my!) imaginations! Perfect for cuddling up with little ones under a blanket on a rainy day...maybe with some tea?
There are a few other books in this series, too...all of which are equally darling, and can be found over at Amazon.
I hope this tiny sneak-peek into these pages has brought a little loveliness into your day, as it has into mine. :)
Have a beautiful day!
