bat – tastic {book of the week}

December 3, 2010 § Leave a comment

We struck gold at the library this week.

Or rather, Liam did.  (Chalk up another point for coolness.)  It is with great honor that we present to you the Fun on Friday book of the week:  Bed, Bats, & Beyond by Joan Holub, a delightfully quirky chapter book (yes, we’re in the big leagues now) that involves a little bat named Fink, who is having trouble falling asleep.  His brothers and sister do their best to help by telling him stories of all kinds; and it this story within in a story bit that is what truly makes this book wonderful, while including a little piece of fun for each member of the family.  (My personal favorite?  The pirate tale …. this captain has a way with words ;)  I should caution you that this story will likely leave your children more giggly than sleepy …. but I think you’d be hard pressed to find anything better than going to bed with a smile on your face. Bed, Bats, & Beyond Darby Creek Exceptional Titles 9780761364511: Joan Holub, Mernie Gallagher-Cole: Books.

Before signing off I would like to quickly announce that I will be participating as a vendor in the local PTA Ho-Ho-Holiday Expo at the Osceola Elementary School from 10-5 TOMORROW.  There will be some Expo-Only Deals available, as well as a door prize and a drawing for  a free session with me!  The Scholastic Book Fair will also be going on as well …. an event that I might just have to sneak over to myself …. and Santa is scheduled to make an appearance.  I would love to see everyone there!  Shoot me an email if you have further questions.

See you next week …. with the debut of some very important and highly anticipated photos …. do I hear wedding bells?  ;o)

Have a fabulous weekend, and Happy Reading!
