“The Snowy Day” at Philadelphia Zoo’s New WINTER Exhibit

Snowy Day at the Philadelphia Zoo

There is not a single person I know who is surprised when I want to visit the Philadelphia Zoo. Not only is it my favorite place in the city, but it’s also my former place of employment. Maybe that makes me a little biased, but based on the sheer number of my friends that have a membership, I know I’m not alone in my love for this historic attraction. And with the Philadelphia Zoo’s new Winter exhibit, I bet YOU will be planning a visit soon too. Continue reading ““The Snowy Day” at Philadelphia Zoo’s New WINTER Exhibit”

George and the Dragon and 15 other dragon books for all age groups

Bookish Rooms: Treasure Island Pirate Bedroom

Treasure Island Pirate Bedroom inspired by the best pirate books we know!

Treasure Island is a classic book for a reason. Sword fighting, dastardly pirates and of course treasure! The perfect story to inspire any child’s imagination. Most people don’t realize that the story is perfect for kids as young as ten. It’s the perfect story to get kids, particularly boys, into classic literature. While my littles are still too young for this tall-tale, they still love a good pirate adventure, which is what inspired us to create this Treasure Island pirate bedroom mood board. It makes me want to redecorate!
