We're ready for the Kind Words Challenge with the Kindness Elves! It goes from March 19-23, but you really can do it any time. There are so many fun ways you can do the Kind Words Challenge! We're following the ideas from @thekindnesselves
emails and blog posts, and I've also added a book and kind words of the day on a chalkboard. ("Thank you" is the focus for tomorrow!) My 4-year-old granddaughter, Zoey, is very excited about learning to read, so we analyze the words phonetically as well as using the chalkboard words as a reminder. We tested our book and kind word of the day with "please" and the book Give Please a Chance. It worked extremely well, and my 4-year-old granddaughter was very focused on using "please" throughout the day. (She typically does well with please and thank you because of all the manners work her parents and I have done with her, but this was a fun way to give a review lesson and extra practice.) To read about the Kind Words Challenge and what we're doing, go to BitsofPositivity.com and then search for "How to Add Kind Words from Books to the Kind Words Challenge”.

The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands.
The dewberries are blooming. Should be an outstanding crop if the flowers are any indication. Do any of y'all pick dewberries (blackberries)? Do you cook with them? One of my all time favorite dishes is the dewberry cobbler my mom used to make when I was a kid. Mmmmm... delicious!!!
Have a good week and a good Monday! I know, I know, a "good" Monday!!!??? Well we can at least try. 😏☺️

I’ve got a soft spot for Dads reading #HisforHappy
to their children 😊 I’m not entirely sure what a “Secret Reader” is as my boys aren’t in Kindergarten yet, but it sounds pretty cool and I’ve had several people tell me they’ve read “H is for Happy” as their “Secret Reader” book and I think that’s pretty darn awesome!! This is Brian and his daughter. Brian is one of the main organizers of the Chicago Dad’s Group (part of @citydadsgroup
) - a Meetup Group I joined when we made the decision I would leave my job and become a stay at home Dad almost two years ago - sheesh time flies!!! Joining that group was one of the best things I’ve done as SAHD and I highly encourage all parents to find a similar Moms or Dads group in your area. It’s a great way to meet other actively involved parents who share some common ground and can be a tremendous support system through some of those challenging parenting moments that arise - who knows you may even make a friend or two! Thanks for sharing, Brian and everything you’ve done for the Chicago Dads Group! 👍🏼👍🏼

This is one of the most comprehensive children’s books about the human body we’ve read so far. It covers everything from different body parts to reproduction to healthy eating and nutrition.
We learned so many amazing facts like why our ears are shaped the way they are. Apart from learning so much, children are likely to enjoy the vibrant colors and how Astro Cat and friends engage with the readers throughout. Recommended for ages 7-10 and up. Publishes May 1, 2018 from @flyingeyebooks

A very important PSA from the bedtime story I read my kids tonight. “The More that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” ❤️📚❤️
Here's today's library returns. I loved Wrong Way Round, about an Aussie family's adventures taking six months off to see the country. And they camped. And it turned into three years.
I ended up letting my 9yos read Do you Speak Chocolate? on their own. They both loved it. And me too. It's about do much more than chocolate - friendship, refugees, divorce, dyslexia, fitting in and standing up for what's right.
We've been looking at some of the notable books for the Children's Book Council of Australia awards too. Do Not Lick this Book is our favourite in this stack. Or "the germ book" as my boy says.
My daughter scooped up The A-Z of Endangered Animals and The Baby Animal Book fm by the same author is a must read before playing baby shower games!

Nothing like Sunday night cuddles 😴
A Sunday well spent brings a week of content. nothing beats a Sunday morning breakfast with grandparents and giggling cousins, followed by a day playing ball and an evening checking for new baby calves!
And look! All my lovely ladies printed on the programme and the flyers (and even posters!) of the #godwinechoir
concert last night, featuring an all female composer list, from Hildegard Von Bingen (died 1179) to Kerry Andrews, and the insane but brilliant Panda Chant II by Meredith Monk. #classicalmusic #joy #femalecomposers #nellsoriginals
Needed to post something a little lighter after an intense evening watching the fire last night. One of my weird hobbies is collecting vintage children’s books. These are some of my favorites, French Disney Golden Books (Les Albums Roses 🌹) I’d love to find some fellow vintage book collectors on here 📚
