{Nature Book Club} Chloe’s Eggs

It’s time for the Nature Book Club again! This month’s theme is eggs. I found Chloe’s Eggs at the library a few weeks ago and knew I wanted it for this month’s book club. It’s a sweet story about a hen, Chloe, who decides one day that she wants to sit on her eggs instead of letting …

Our Favourite Family Readalouds

I’ve always been a bookworm. Growing up, going to the library was the highlight of my week. I hid away with my books as soon as we got home, then read my brothers’ and my mother’s. In high school, when my brothers were less interested in the library, I just took books out on their …

She has an A5 notebook …
