Three Author Birthdays in Three Days

My family and I had so much fun celebrating 3 author birthdays in 3 days on my Happy Birthday Author blog.

We celebrated Lesa Cline-Ransome on July 12. She is the author of The Light in the Darkness, Whales and Trails, Before and Now, and Quilt Counting. After reading, Quilt Counting we made our own pin cushions. Click here to read the blog post.

And yes, I sewed a pin cushion too!

We celebrated Ashley Bryan on July 13. He is the author and illustrator of Let it Shine, Beautiful Blackbird, and Ashley Bryan's Puppets.  We read Puppets and searched for treasures on a beach along Lake Erie. We turned our beach treasures (driftwood, shell, fishing gear, etc.) into puppets. Click here to read the blog post.

What do you think?
We celebrated Brian Selznick on July 14. He is the author and illustrator of The Invention of Hugo Cabret and Wonderstruck. We traveled to Michigan to visit Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum to see real automaton. Click here to read the blog post.

We loved this museum and highly recommend a visit.

  6. Unfortunately there are just some all-too-common nutrients that we simply don't get enough of. And they're absolutely critical to optimal health and wellness. Especially as we age.
    Here I sifted through the supplements that are available on the market and boiled them down to three that can have the best effect for us.

  7. Magnesium is found in so many healthy whole foods like beans, nuts, seeds and green leafy vegetables. In fact, the magnesium element is central to a plant's chlorophyll – it's actually what causes green plants to be green! And most of us just don't get enough green plants into our bodies on a regular basis. (You know I have a recipe with green leafies for you below, right?).

  8. This was dinner tonight at our house... I am too tired some days to come up with fantastic or extravagant meal ideas, plus the kids don't eat my best meals anyways. Tonight I wanted them to get some good calories so I added sausage to the recipe. It's delicious and hearty and best of all, it's super easy. friv2020 || kizi ||abcya4 free games
