What parenting faux pas have other parents made? I’d love to hear all your stories
Here is the list of books that Zoe reccommends for other 7 year old girls:
True magic for a child turning seven!
All 14 Oz Books written by L Frank Baum
– Ozma of OZ (Her favorite in the series)
– The Road to Oz (my least favorite book in the series, in fact the only one i did not care for)
– The Tin Woodman of OZ
– The Magic of Oz
Osma of Oz and Dorothy were her two favorite characters!
” I liked that the dolls were bold and went on adventures. I also like the friendship between Anabelle Doll and Tifanny Funcraft. They had a lot of fun together! It is also a little scary to see if Aunty Sarah would be in permanent doll state. I like books about old dolls and doll houses”
The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler Warner (Books 1-4)
” I liked reading about how the Boxcar children set up their own home in an old boxcar in the woods. I liked how they looked after each other and their dog. They also went on many adventures. I hope there is always another Box Car Children Mystery to read!”
“Nancy Drew is the best, She has taught me all about sleuthing! but do not watch the original TV Series Nancy Drew!” Zoe’s words not mine. I found it quite entertaining in a 1950’s kind of way, black and white fun!
This was a great story about 3 girls (Pauline, Petrova and Posie) that are sisters by chance who chose their own last name “Fossil”. They live in London a long time ago with their nanna and guardian. It is a fun book for anyone who likes to perform or likes Ballet.
We never read other books in this series Theater Shoes or Skating Shoes. If you have we would love some feedback…on how they compare to the original which we loved. We also enjoyed the original Ballet Shoes movie the one made in 2000 not 2008.
We would love to hear what books other 7 year olds reccommend.
As some of you know I love vintage campers! I am often seen sorting a fav camper t-shirt and a wall of photos and art work featuring vintage camper scenes. For a long time I have been waiting for the opportunity to photograph the girls in front of the Smarty Pants Camper. When driving over today the sun was bright a perfect November day. I asked the girls to dress up in wacky colorful clothes and come out for a photo! Usually the girls spend the day playing dress up…but today there was little interest in my idea. Eventually we got them outside, but alas my camera had a big grease mark on the lense so through we had a laugh the results were not what I had hoped!

We have been reading the Box Car Children and I wonder if these girls could be as resourceful living here in the camper! I think I will follow this post with a favorite book post as I have not done one in a while and we have been lost in literature books lately!
