Jubilee and Hezekiah in 2012
We are on Snow Day 7,468. Or so it seems. My kids have not been to school in well over a week and we are more or less snowbound here in our little valley. It’s sort of like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. No one ever goes in and no one ever comes out.
Good thing I have a huge stockpile of books to read while we all cozy up together.
This is the humorous, slightly irreverent story of how Johann Sebastian Bach composed the Goldberg Variations. The illustrations will give you an idea for the tone of the book. One of the main characters is called The Rich Dude and if you are really sensitive about what your kids here I am warning you that Goldberg (the musician in the story is called a Dumb Dope). I, for one, think this is a funny, zany book that introduces Bach in a way that is clear to draw kids in.
What is the first thing I did when I finished the book? Google the Goldberg Variations of course. Good sleep in an ongoing issue for me (sadly, I’m not wealthy like The Rich Dude) but can certainly appreciate someone’s efforts to get a good night’s sleep.
If you enjoy this book, then I also recommend The Composer is Dead by Lemony Snicket.
Sunny’s Tow Truck Saves the Day by Anne Marie Pace
Sunny’s Tow Truck goes on sale in March 2019. If you have ever been on an endless, trial-filled road trip (like ours all end up being) you will certainly appreciate this book. A family picnic is derailed when the family has a flat tire. Thankfully, Sunny’s Tow Truck comes to the rescue and with a little change of perspective (and some ice cream) the day has a happy ending.
If like me, you care about finding books with characters with a variety of skin tones, you will love Sunny’s Tow Truck Saves the Day. Ideal for kids ages 3-6.
My Magical Unicorn a Push Pull Slide book.
My Magical Unicorn is a delightful board book for babies and toddlers will all kinds of pages to push, pull, and rip out (just kidding. Unless your kids are like mine). There is very little plot to this book (what toddler needs plot) but I can guarantee your baby or toddler will be attached to the bright illustrations and interactive nature of this book.
This book is great if you are looking to gain a new perspective on how and why you spend money. This book focuses on mindset and behavior, not the technical side of finances or investing. If you are looking for a book to help you with spending this is a great one to start with. Shift your perspective, then you can move on to the technical side of things.
We are huge Dave Ramsey fans and this book is very much in line with Dave Ramsey’s viewpoint. Debt is not about numbers, it’s about behavior.
