Though I read a lot of comic books and graphic novels, lately I’ve been reading a lot of Children’s books. Mostly for research for a project I’m working on, but also because they are a great palate cleanser between other genres.
This is a gorgeous little read that I discovered on Scribd. This is a wordless book but each picture speaks volumes. Flora wants to be a flamingo. She prepares her self and goes and stands behind one. What unfolds next is a gorgeous and fun ballet as she finds that imitation isn't as easy as it looks. I loved this book so much. A must read! Or should I say a must view?
Nana In The City
Nana isn't a wordless book but the art in it captures your full attention. The story revolves around a young boy who is nervous visiting his grandmother in New York. The artist really captures the beauty of the change of seasons on the East Coast, and the pleasures of city life. A very sweet message and a great all ages read.
Twitter is my main source of connecting with my blog. I have a Facebook page but I’m very bad at updating! You can find my Twitter account Here. I’m also on Blogger. The Blogger I-phone app is a lifesaver since I don’t have a laptop. I send my posts in draft format to my blog from windows Live Writer and can publish them from my phone any time.
Though I have good intentions in regards to socializing with other bloggers life often get in the way. However Facebook groups have resulted in me having some great interactions with fellow bloggers. Here are a few I belong to:
The fit readers is an offshoot of Book Blog Walkers. Because of this group I discovered the Lose It app which resulted in me know being 20 pounds lighter! The group is really helpful with recipes, health articles and moral support for those tough days. I’m really greatful to know them.
I discovered the Coyer group over a year ago through the Clean Out Your E-Reader Challenge. I have really gotten my E-reader under control because of this group. I went from having over 120 E-books to my current total of 22! I’m really excited for the summer event coming June 20th! Sign ups are now open!
