📚Book Recommendation📚Hug Machine by Scott Campbell- This is a book we got from library, and it quickly became a favorite read for everyone in the family. You must read it in a robot 🤖voice and expect a lot of hugs as you go. It’s about a boy who hugs everything including a porcupine. 🦔My son has been walking around saying “I am a hug machine!” 💕It would be great as a classroom read aloud or as a bedtime story. 🌝See my stories for a quick flip through the book. #childrensbooks#childrensliterature#bedtimestories#preschool#toddler#momlife#sahm#stayathomemom#readaloud
“Some princes love princes, some marry, some don’t. Some people accept this, and some people won’t. But whoever you are, and whatever you do, the important thing is to always be you.”
People are created in all shapes and sizes. Who they are and who they love is up to them. End of. ~
Beautiful illustration by, as always, the ever talented @jacquie_hughes and rhyming words by me, Suze. 💜
Did you know that #raccoons have special #paws ? 🐾🦝 Raccoons have four to five times more sensory cells in their paws than other mammals and 75 % of their brain that processes sensory signals is devoted to touch.
This allows them to differentiate between objects without seeing them, which is crucial when feeding at night.

Believers and skeptics alike will be thrilled by Simon's other-worldly experience—an alien abduction. Like any good conspiracy, readers will question the rigid constructs that fight to deprive us of our ability to confront reality. Is it just Simon's imagination, or do the owls have a message for him? Pick up @ronaldsmithwriter's THE OWLS HAVE COME TO TAKE US to find out.
