I loved the movie Night At the Museum, where all the exhibits in the museum come to life and have crazy adventures at night. Today’s book uses that same theme.

The boy in the story is helping a mammoth find his little brother who has run out of the museum.

The baby mammoth returns to the museum and we follow him through many different displays.


This book has a great feature, lots of little lift-the-flaps with facts and trivia. I thoroughly enjoyed the illustrations and learned lots of fun facts at the same time!

This book could keep kids entertained with the gorgeous illustrations for hours. I could certainly spend more time with this book myself.

Summer Reading

My Own Book Club

My husband and I left NY state and headed to the in-laws in Michigan for a week on July 1st. It was a wonderful week! We did lots of things, saw his friends and extended family, and just had a general wonderful time! You can find those adventures HERE!

What I wanted to share, though, was about my 9 yo niece and 8 yo nephew, Molly and Remi. Now, Molly LOVES to read just as much as me. She always has a book to read at grandma’s house. Remi, not so much. But he’s recently found some books that are easy so he likes them.

Last Thursday, they came over while their parents were both at work. I watched them most of the day while my husband and father-in-law worked on his classic car. At one point we all went outside. Remi played some baseball by himself for a while, Molly joined in, then they both came and sat beside me, where I was reading a Merlin book. Molly had brought her book outside and it was on the table where we were. Remi decided to go get his too so we could all read together. I love these kids!
