Have you heard of Poppins Book Nook? It is an online book club for kids with a monthly theme to follow. We have been following along, but this month we are blogging about it too!

This month, the theme was Presidents. Do you know how many books there are about presidents? Trying to find just one or two…yeah, that doesn't work too well 🙂 We decided we wanted to learn more about Abraham Lincoln, so we read a couple of books about him.

My personal favorite was "…If You Grew Up With Abraham Lincoln" by Ann McGovern. The kids loved learning the differences from our time to Lincoln's time. We had fun learning that the house Lincoln lived in was a log cabin. We decided to build our own cabins out of popsicle sticks. Ray Ray and Little Miss decided that their choice of glue would be a pretty glitter glue…have to add some decorations some how right?

We also learned about the phrase "Honest Abe". The kids are now having fun calling each other "Honest Abe" when someone isn't telling the whole truth. This makes it really fun to listen to 🙂 And who could forget the use of lights…or lack of. We turned on our little electric fireplace and lit a candle to show the amount of light they would have in the dark. The kids weren't sure what to think, but did have fun just sitting for a moment.

  1. I am excited to be joining in with the Poppins Book Nook soon- although it may have been hard to do the Presidents theme in New Zealand since we only have a Prime Minister.
