  1. Such a great post! We love connecting (and encouraging others to connect) books with experiences. Kids get so much from matching an outing or activity with the book.
    My favorite story to tell folks is about when I took my daughter to our local art museum – the first thing she wanted to do was visit the bathrooms! Well, I had forgotten that she head just read “From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler” – she wanted to see if it was possible to hide in the stalls just like Claudia did in the book!

    1. Ha Ha! That is so funny! (Were they big enough?)
      I need a to keep a notebook by the computer so I can add all of these great books everyone is recommending!
