We love books around here and, what’s this? October is National Book Month. I just don’t believe how conveniently these holidays spring up for me. We’ve talked about costumes, taking great care to avoid overpriced store-bought costumes, we’ve talked about easy (and cheap) projects and treats you can make with your kids to celebrate Halloween […]
