Here are the toddler books we are reading this month with my two and three year old. These are popular books with great themes for both girls and boys.
A couple of months ago a came across an article in Mother Earth Living magazine that inspired me to add sourdough culture to my list. Making your own sourdough starter is so much easier than it sounds and nothing tastes better than a fresh loaf or homemade sourdough bread, straight from the oven.

The Daughter’s Of Temperance Hobbs by Katherine Howe (ARC Review) | This is the story of a Boston based professor of colonial history, Connie, and her familial connection to witchcraft and the price that comes with it.
