Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

The Berenstain Bears Celebrate Spring!

As the Berenstain were such a big part of my children's reading experience it seems appropriate to let them welcome spring to the Richards's Tree House in Dudley Country. So come on down that dirt road and welcome them into your child's life.  They are fabulous visitors and we always welcome them back.

"There is slush and mush from melting snow. 
Birds sing.
Plants grow.

A crocus grows 
right through                                                         
the snow.

Wind blows hats off people's heads. 
We take out bikes.
We put back sleds.

It's time to get out 
brooms and mops.
It starts to rain...
then it stops.

The sun begins 
to warm the air.
Great Natural Bear 
comes out 
of his lair...

Hooray! IT'S SPRING!"

Spring is in the air. There's so much to do in this season: playing, cleaning, celebrating, and thinking about the planet. There's a great selection of books that you might want to spring for...

The Bear Museum
Who among us has not experienced even a little bit of terror speaking before an audience, especially as a child ..

Join us at the Tree House...
There's always something happening in Bear Country! The Berenstain Bears Tree House is regularly updated and here you can find the latest news and adventures of your favorite Bears in Bear Country.

I LOVE the Berenstain Bears. My mom has moved around so much since I was a child but one thing I've asked of her is PLEASE mom, keep my Berenstain Bears books! I hope someday to pass them on when I have a family. :) Seeing this post gave me warm fuzzies in my tummy. Loved those bears when I was small, and I always will!
