First Primary Talk - Owen is a Sunbeam!

Oh my, what a darling little sunbeam we have! He gave his first talk in church on Sunday, and I couldn't be more proud. He stood up there without hesitation in front of 50 children and 15 adults.
Way to go buddy!

Kids Book of the Week: Mom Says I Can

Winner of the 2009 Mom's Choice Award

Why we picked this book: Someone in my ward was selling some books, and this book was part of a 'bundle' that I bought from her.

My Review:  This is my favorite kids book to date. Probably because of all the hugs and kisses I received at the end. This adventurous little boy is searching for the "worlds greatest treasure". He pretends to be a pirate, indian, spaceman, cowboy, knight in shining armor, etc... I love when he finds his treasure! The illustrations are perfect! I just love them. I am so excited when he chooses this book to read at night. I can't wait to read more books by Judy Cooley: I Love You More, and I Want to Be a Mommy.

Owen's Reaction: My sweet little Owen (4 yrs, 1.5 months old) studied and enjoyed every picture, and asked questions. He is so similar to this little boy in the book, everything is an adventure in his little world.

Mommy: What's your treasure, Owen?
Owen: "YOU!" followed by big kisses and hugs. Every time. How lucky am I? Seriously!

Kids Book of the Week: Way Down Deep in the Deep Blue Sea

Way Down Deep in the Deep Blue Sea, by Jan Peck

My Review: I liked the repetitive rhyming words. This helped especially to get Owen involved in saying the words with me. By the way, the illustrations were darling.

Owen's Response:
He asked for this book every night (right after this one about unicorns). He loves all the different sea creatures, so this book was spot on the mark! Owen giggled at the ending. :-)

Owen's age: 4.1 years
