Amy Johnson  Trying to cultivate a love of reading in each of my five little boys. Sharing daily images of the books we're reading and the things we love #kidpages


The 🌡 stole my heart.

When we first met Curtis and Alicia, we were young and newly married, and so were they. Twelve years later, we are a much bigger (and noisier) group, but our friendship has remained strong. Thanks, Langstraats, for a truly marvelous vacation! ❀️

Grapefruit picking!

I’m beginning to understand why wintering in Arizona is a thing. πŸ™ŒπŸ»

When my sister-in-law found out we were going to the Grand Canyon, she recommended β€œBrighty of the Grand Canyon” as a must readaloud. And she was right! We have loved reading this book, and today it all came to vivid life when we stood on the South Rim and took in the vast majesty in front of us. We pictured Brighty moving surefooted on a canyon ledge and packing a load for Uncle Jim and then fighting off a cougar. It was the kind of magic that is born when a story collides with real life.

More than anything, I dread the dark that comes with winter, but this book almost convinced me that there might be just a little bit of magic when the moon shines down on a frigid landscape. πŸŒ™

At least, the kids in this story think it's magical. They've been waiting for the temperature to drop and the snow to fall and the moon to rise. Because when all those things happen together, it's time for the first hockey game of the season.
They trek across the field in the starry stillness.and clear the frozen lake of snow. And then, just as the moon comes out, they glide out onto the ice: "It is marvelous ice, as good as any we have known." πŸŒ™

If the long nights of winter are hard for you, too, then this month's #littlelitbookseries is going to be just the remedy. Visit the other contributors for more stories about the beauty (and magic) of night. πŸŒ™

Another Christmas gift! I made my sister the Tincture hat by @dreareneeknits in @brooklyntweed Arbor in the colors Treehouse and Driftwood. This was my first time with a slip stitch pattern, and it was amazingly simple but created a really cool effect. (And P. S., I promise I’m almost done showing the Christmas gifts I made.)

First time at the new @halecentretheatre. Aida was spectacular. πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Sometimes people ask me what my kids are reading. This πŸ‘†πŸ»is the series Aaron (age 9) is currently devouring. (Also, side note, I bought him #3 and #4 for Christmas, but then he checked them out from the school library and had them read before the break. So I bought #5 and #6, and when he came home from school with the fifth, I hid it from him so he couldn’t read it too before Christmas. πŸ™ˆ)

Such a sweet story about friendship and adventure with sparse text and lovely illustrations. Swipe ⬅️ to see my favorite page. #picturebooks #kidlit #kidpages #sunlitkidpages

One of my goals for 2017 was to take a stranded knitting class. I ended up taking two. One was an online class through @craftsyknits and the other was through my local yarn store @blazingneedles. For the online class, I made this sampler cowl by @mjmucklestone. It was so rewarding to try out different colorwork patterns, and I loved the end result so much. I gave the cowl to my mom for Christmas, but if I’m being totally honest, part of me wanted to keep it for myself.

πŸŽ‰ Welcome, 2018! πŸŽ‰
