I’m typing next to an open window, and there has been a steady stream of pedestrian traffic outside. It’s up to 28 degrees today, and it’s a comparative heat wave. Last weekend, we were preparing for a Freezepocalypse of ridiculously low temperatures (even for Minnesota), and my family spend two and a half days stuck inside our small apartment. Here are three picture books that, together, represent our Freezepocalypse:
I’m Bored by Michael Ian Black is for my six-year-old, for obvious reasons. I felt more like the mama penguin who needed a little time to herself in Baby Penguins Everywhere by Melissa Guion. Side note to parents: Do you need a time out yourself? Read your kids this book to introduce the idea. You’re welcome.
Fortunately, my wonderful partner decided it was a Soup Day as in Soup Day by Melissa Iwai, so we were well fed. Soup makes everything better.
Books and soup. That’s how we got through our Freezepocalypse. How about you?
