I’ve had a wonderful week, even though the Chicago area weather insists upon being gray and gloomy! I spent time with both of my sisters, two of my nieces and some good friends, and finally finished my week by celebrating our son’s birthday. What could be better than that? As a result, I haven’t spent as much time at the library or reading articles on the internet. However, I have lots to share with you today, especially some kids’ books to remember!
