May went by in a blur. I set aside two weeks for jury duty, and only had to serve three days. But still it seems I couldn’t get enough done despite all the meeting-free days. Bean graduated from preschool and Lu is now finishing up first grade. We played with my parents’ new puppy, built a fairy garden, and opened up our Northern Minnesota cabin for the season.
On the Lu and Bean Read front, we decided to take a break from the podcast to rethink the format. We’ll start up again in a few weeks, but for now you can listen to old episodes here. We also launched our Summer Book Hunts, an activity that will help keep your kids reading all summer long. And we launched a partnership with Addison Reads, offering Summer Book Packs for kids of all ages. Use code LUANDBEAN for 10 percent off your order.
In between all of that, we read some really great picture books this month! Here are the eight picture books we read most this month:
I Don’t Draw, I Color! by Adam Lehrhaupt and illustrated by Felicita Sala
Martina & Chrissie by Phil Bildner and illustrated by Brett Helquist
Did you know that Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert played against one another 80 times over the course of their tennis careers? Do you know who won more of those matches? Martina & Chrissie chronicles one of the greatest rivalries in the history of sports, describing how the on-court foes developed a lasting off-court friendship.
