Hooked On A Book

I have two book recommendations; one for you and one for your child.

I took Dylan to a bookstore the other day and he left with a book titled, School Bugs: An Elementary Pop-up Book by David A. Carter. He loves it and I find it absolutely charming!

The book is about a school of bugs and each page has a pop-up. The pop-ups are unique and intricate while the pictures introduce concepts of school and the different subjects that are studied there. I don’t want to give too much away, but here are a smattering of images:

The school house:

The lunch box:

And of course, the playground!

If you like this book, the author makes a bunch of different bug books too! I think they’d all make great gifts for a toddler or preschooler.

Now, onto a book recommendation for YOU. If you have not read it, run, don’t walk to pick up a copy of Gone Girl: A Novel by Gillian Flynn.


This book is SO good. It’s a modern mystery about a dysfunctional marriage told from each spouse’s point of view. There are lots of twists and turns and you never quite know what’s going on. Its suspenseful but fun and not overly dark. Just read it, okay? Thanks.
