Books for Tween Girls

I asked on Instagram for your Tween girl’s favorite books to read and promised I’d share the results! SO many good ones I’ve never heard of and ALL have amazing reviews online! Check it out! One I missed after this post was made were the “I Survived” books (boys LOVE them but there are a few about girls specifically too, not that it matters necessarily.) Also the mystery books by Blue Balliet! All steeped in art history and exciting stories to boot! I love that kids get to learn more about art while reading. Two of my favorite things! The … Read more

small fry book reviews

SEPTEMBER BOOK PICKS! MINE: LISTEN: I loved Trevor Noah’s narration of his autobiography Born A Crime. I learned so much about Apartheid in South Africa and am absolutely shocked it continued virtually the same until 1994. Just boggles my mind!! The book was so funny, so sweet and touching, so eye opening, so well written, and so heartbreaking. Definitely worth a listen. 5 Stars READ: A Visit From the Good Squad has been on my list for years because as a English Lit major I heard it’s a must. For people who study literature and get excited by something they’ve … Read more

4 Weeks to Read

4 Weeks to Read

I’ve been testing this reading system out for a few weeks and am finally ready to share. It’s pretty freaking good, I must say! 4 Weeks To Read has a 98% rate, is $99 (they also do $25/month for 5 months!) — use SMALLFRY10 for 10% off –AND it’s guaranteed so after 30 days, if it didn’t work for you, you can get your money back! Here’s the run down: Learning Dynamics is a school in Utah that is easily the top 3 schools for early education. They pride themselves in having preschoolers 100% ready for Kindergarten.

white coffee table books

Modern White Entry Way

I pitched this question the other day on Instagram because I was on the hunt for coffee table books with white spines for my entry. Runner // Light custom order from Echo Neon (Ten-Twenty is our anniversary! 10/20/2005) // Credenza – Besta via Ikea! (high gloss Selsviken fronts) // Custom Door via CBW Doors // String of Bananas plant (locally for $30 at Cook’s!) You’d think it wouldn’t be that hard, but since you can’t usually see the spine in any online images, and so many of the books I have or saw in stores had white covers, but a different … Read more

We Don’t Eat Our Classmates

We Don't Eat Our Classmates

I mentioned We Don’t Eat Our Classmates last week and am excited to share it again today in partnership with Disney Book Group! Honestly I think this book is going to be a children’s classic. We Don’t Eat Our Classmates by Ryan T. Higgins is the story of Penelope Rex who is starting her first day of school, she is filled with questions and unsure how the day will go, but as soon as she realizes that her fellow students are children – her favorite treat – things get interesting! I laughed out loud several times, it’s so clever and darling and … Read more

DIY Reading Fort

$1 off coupon | Dollar General Deals

This post is sponsored by Kellogg’s. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Currently my boys share a room and both of them have been known to yell to the other “I just need some space!” so I knew it was time to create another option for them if they need to get some alone time in! A good ol’ sheet fort on my bed (since I’m never in there until way past their bedtime anyway) is just what they doctor ordered. We’ve had an ongoing incentive at our house that they can earn different rewards for every book that … Read more

July Book Reviews! I rarely, if ever, do this but I quit not one, but TWO books this month! (The last time was probably 6 years ago and it was Freedom by Jonathan Franzen) it might be my stress levels, a never ending to-do list with the move, not sure but I have the personality that finishes books to the bitter end so it’s shocking maybe to only me! First– Reincarnation Blues by Michael Poore. The story of Milo, a man who has died nearly 10,000 times. He only has a few more shots to hit perfection or he disappears … Read more

Small Fry Book Reviews

JUNE BOOK PICKS! HARD COPY: I remember very vividly when I started reading this book a couple months ago thinking THIS WOULD NEVER HAPPEN IN 2018! And I swear on the bible a couple days later I started hearing about the children separated from their parents at the border. It felt very eerie to be reading about the story while this was happening in real life. Before We Were Yours is a historical fiction novel about the Tennessee Children’s Home Society back in 1939 — where children were actually kidnapped or taken from their parents and adopted without their consent. … Read more
