Pink, Pink, Pink!!

"It was a rainy day, too wet to go outside" so begins my daughter's favorite book Pinkalicious

Since March is reading month, today she got to dress like her favorite book character. If you don't know Pinkalicious you can read more about the story in this article about the musical that was recently performed in our area.

This is my daughter reading Pinkalicious when she was four. :)

Anyway, it really is raining here in East Lansing today (which would be a bummer except that the Prez just picked our team to win the NCAA tourney).

One great reason to develop a love of reading, especially fiction, is that it may improve empathy skills. In fact, maybe that's what's wrong with the world today. Not enough readers has resulted in a tidal wave of unkindness. Who knows?? Just to be safe, I picked up a copy of Jodi Picoult's book Storytellers.

Taste of Home

And, raising a generation of readers would be incomplete if we didn't take time to enjoy  them so here are 20 tips for how to connect with your child today. Or, maybe you'll choose to bake some pink cupcakes like Pinkalicious and her mom. This pink velvet cupcake recipe from Taste of Home looks yummy!
