In September, our bilingual Harriet is leading discussion on two Norwegian picture books: Garmann’s Summer and Garmann’s Street. These books are in English, so Harriet takes the whole foreign-language burden on herself, unless we have others tuning in for whom English is a second, third, or seventh language.
In October, Shelly will lead discussion on Where is the Mango Princess? A Journey Back from Brain Injury.
Who’s up for choosing a book and leading discussion in November?
If you’re wondering what I’m up to, I’m up to my eyeballs in fruits and veggies! This morning it was chard, broccoli, and snow peas. This afternoon it will be blueberries and strawberries. Yesterday, I pickled beets for the first time ever, and tomorrow, I think I’m going to tackle my giant cabbage–not giant as in 100-pound State Fair giant, but two or three times the size of what we commonly see in grocery stores.
It’s so satisfying to see daily changes in the freezer and pantry.
I have Stitching for Literacy news from Rose and the Redwood Stitchers, Becca, Super Mo, Mare, and Gayle along with many thoughts and wishes for the upcoming school year. I’ll share it all when I see you back here in September.
Enjoy the rest of summer!
