A new month means a new book for the Daisy May & Me Family Book Club!
We hope you enjoyed last month's book as much as we did, and we think you'll enjoy this one too. April's pick is...
Absolutely Truly: A Pumpkin Falls Mystery by Heather Vogel Frederick
We're talking about family relationships this month and Absolutely Truly is a great example of that. We'll read about Truly, a 12-year-old girl who moves from Austin, Texas to the small city of Pumpkin Falls, New Hampshire. She'll navigate relationships with her parents, siblings, and her aunt, as well as new friendships, all while trying to solve a mystery! And she's 6-feet tall, so that adds a fun element too.
It's 355 pages and the audiobook is 8 hours and 1 minute.
Reading level is grades 3-7 (ages 8-12) but another one that can be read aloud to younger kids.
We hope you'll join us. We think you'll absolutely truly enjoy it. ;)

How often do you look in the mirror? Is it a quick look to check your hair or to see if something is in your teeth, or are you truly looking at yourself - who you are?
Each year we have the opportunity to make resolutions; we hope to become better versions of ourselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually. But do we take time regularly for self-reflection outside of the beginning of a year?
This week’s #wowwomanwednesday is a great example of constant self-reflection and seeing things for more than they appear to be.
Frida Kahlo was a famous Mexican artist who frequently painted self-portraits. Her work is honest and passionate. Despite a life of health challenges, she found a way to express herself through art that still resonates with people around the world.
Head on over to the blog to learn more about Frida and try a fun activity to experience self-expression and evaluation. We also have discussion questions to go along with the activity to talk with your kids about the importance of self-reflection and awareness of our surroundings.
"Young women today have a great advantage, and it is that there are no more closed doors. That was basically what the '70s was all about. Opening doors that had been closed to women." #wowwomanwednesday
Today’s world has so many opportunities for women, and many of those opportunities were made possible by Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Political views aside, it’s hard to deny the path that RBG paved for women to have a seat at the table. Throughout her life she broke down gender norms and expectations, and it all began with her mother’s view on education.
In this post, you’ll learn more about Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s life and accomplishments, as well as an activity and some discussion questions about the importance of education, goal-setting, and chasing your dreams.
