---I am currently on page 218 and trying to figure out if making school paste will make a horrible mess of a pan. I need to figure out if we have to get a pan especially for this.
We read this on both Day 1 and Day 2 of the read-a-thon. :-)
I have read 253 pages of this book so far this read-a-thon.
-----Correct that, I got to page 260 and then doubled back to page 250. There is a story, "24 Views of Mt. Fuji, by Hokusai" that has heavy mention of things from Japanese culture and I am taking the time to understand what I am reading about. If I had not started looking the references up, I would not know that the latest the story could be set is the end of the 1800s...it takes place in Owari and both the province and the (fuedal) domain no longer exist. This story is very beautiful so far and it hints that much of it will be very sad.
-----I am on page 8 of Michael Crichton's "Timeline."
-----"Follow Me, Mittens." A Scholastic My First Shared Reading book. We read this twice. It is about a kitten that is supposed to be staying close to his owner.
-----"Barbie: On Your Toes." A learning-to-read book about Barbie and the costumes she wears as a ballerina. There was jumping in this book and we followed the reading by bouncing, jumping and "Spinjitsu Spinning" to the song that is both of the children's favorite..."Bounce (Radio Edit)" by Calvin Harris feat Kelis.
-----A Winnie-the-Pooh interactive book about ducklings. There is an interactive game at the end that we played.
-----A Mickey Mouse Halloween book with flip-ups. Toddler is actually not tearing this book when looking at it on her own (very different from Preschooler at that age).
