Book Fan Friday

The weekend is almost here! And that means Halloween is tomorrow! I didn't have a Halloween themed book to read to Baby Girl but I made it work. She just got a new book the other day. Blue's Clues A Visit to the Firehouse by Lauryn Silverhardt.

I've always thought Blue's Clues was one of the cutest children's programs. Baby Girl has a DVD (we don't have Noggin' or anything here that plays it) and now this book. It teaches kids about what a fireman does. It is a little advanced for Baby Girl, of course, but she loves the pictures (she really likes Blue's Clues) and I know she'll like it more and more as she gets older. And I never knew Blue had a brother, so we both learned something. lol

Since this book had nothing to do with Halloween, I got online and looked for a picture for her to color. She just started actually coloring instead of trying to eat the crayons. :) It is very exciting to watch her scribble. I got down on the floor and colored with her. She would hand me different colors to use and she'd change her crayon all the time. It was too sweet.

You're darn right it's up on our fridge right now. :) I'm so proud of all those little scribbles. We colored for a little while until she felt the picture was done and crawled away.

As always, if you have found a great book, children's or otherwise, I would love to see what it is and what you thought about it! I will leave the link-up open all week so feel free to join in at any time.

  1. I didn't know Blue had a brother either. I've seen Magenta...I don't know if she's related to Blue or not. :-/

    The picture that Ashlyn colored is too sweet! I've tried to color with Dawson a few times but he still tries to eat the crayons. *lol*
