I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

This is a counting picture book. Count the brownies as they go about their chores.

I love picture books and have continued to purchase them long past when my children would enjoy them. That being said, I don't have an under five child to share this book with. I love the idea of the book, don't think it would work well on a smaller screen, and some of the illustrations were creepy. And what's with the buttons? I did have a little trouble with "7" because I thought a window was a mirror.

I would love to have brownies to help with housework and maybe with a young one we could pretend to help them do their work. Then I could do some more after bedtime and make a game out of having the child guess what the "brownies" did while they were asleep.

This would not have been on my "must have" list but I did enjoy it and will keep it.
