We’re starting to get in a good summer groove and I’m writing this with the sun pouring through my office window, which is a nice change from the rainy overcast days we’ve had this week (we kept having to cancel our swimming plans with friends!).
Crossing my fingers that this weekend stays that way – we have some fun Father’s Day plans and some sunshine would make them all the better!
Here are some great book deals going on this weekend!

Mr. Putter & Tabby Bake the Cake: Book #3 by Cynthia Rylant – audiobook
This easy reader chapter book series is a hit with so many preschoolers and early elementary schoolers – in this edition, Mr. Putter is excited about Christmas, and it is only July! He begins thinking about presents to give his friends and thinks a cake might be the perfect gift – except that he has never made one before.

Barkus by Patricia MacLachlan – audiobook
The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed by Jessica Lahey – audiobook
It took me forever to open this parenting book, but once I started, I couldn’t stop talking about this. Seriously a great parenting book with lots of great discussion of helping your child develop a growth mindset and how to stop over-parenting.
The Terrible Two’s Last Laugh by Jory John & Mac Barnett – audiobook
My girls LOVE this hilarious series about two boys trying to out-prank each other. This is the final book in the four-part series and just as hilarious as the first!
Heart and Soul: The Story of America and African Americans by Kadir Nelson – audiobook
This book offers a beautiful introduction to African-American history, starting at Revolutionary-era slavery and ending with the election of President Obama.
