Imagine my surprise (and glee!) a few days ago when I noticed that my latest post was actually Jump Into a Book’s 1001 blog post!
That’s ONE THOUSAND (plus one) blog posts on books, activities and sharing my love of children’s literature!
In hindsight I probably shouldn’t have been surprised. I’ve been creating unique book reviews of beautiful children’s books since 2010 and the years have simply flown by.
Proof that, when you are doing something you love, it doesn’t feel like work.
During these last 7+ years, much has changed. My youngest son has graduated High School and is in college, Jump Into a Book has recently undergone a transformation and “update” and I’ve published my fourth book, Dragons Are Real.
AND I know have a side business/project of helping communities build healing gardens, labyrinths and fairy gardens. I am very blessed.
Looking back on my body of work when it comes to Jump Into a Book, I know I have many favorites and I know my readers do as well. So, just for fun, I’d like to share my Top 50 Blog Posts from Jump Into a Book. Give these a peek…you never who what crafts I will be creating or children’s book I will be reviewing!
Something To Do Book Reviews
2009 was the first year I started blogging about kids’ books on this site and one my favorite childhood books, Blueberries for Sal, was one of the books I reviewed in those early days. I updated this popular post again in 2016 as part of my #ReadKidsClassics series. I am still very proud of both posts.
Secret Garden Wednesday has been my way of pulling projects, learning and crafts from my book, A Year in the Secret Garden, to help bring it too life. Here’s a recap:
Anything Roald Dahl is sure to be a crowd-pleaser and this year was no different. Check out my Celebrating Roald Dahl Day with Fun, Freebies and BOOKS post.
