So Wednesday was my first book discussion! And I have to say a good time was had by all! You know, you can still read our book discussion? It's over on Sleepy Bear's blog. You may have to scroll down a bit to get to the beginning of the conversation. It's fun to talk to friends about books. I also learned a lot about Sleepy Bear, and his friend Moosey-Moose too. Thanks Sleepy Bear for reading with us! :o)
Love a book so much you wish you could eat it? Try making a few of these yummy recipes featured in your favorite books or inspired by your favorite characters.
The kids' book club book: reading ideas, recipes, activities, and smart tips for organizing terrific kids' book clubs by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp
Sewing school: 21 sewing projects kids will love to make by Amie Petronis Plumley & Andria Lisle; photography by Justin Fox Burks — This book is a perfect place for any kid to start to learn to sew. For that matter, it's so easy to follow and well-designed, it's a great start for a sewing novice of any age. Covering hand-stitching and basic sewing machine techniques, you can learn to make a pincushion, a pillow, and a stuffed animal just to start with.

Sleepy Bear wrote back! Woo Hoo!
Sleepy Bear — We have had lots of snow here, but it's been kinda warm lately and it's melting. I even saw a robin this week! But I don't think it will be spring here yet. After all, we still have to have Winter Break! What's the weather like by your house?
And speaking of Winter Break, you said you wanted to read a book with us, and guess what? I'm having my very first Book Discussion here at the library that week. Miss Ruth is going to help me here at the library. Now, I don't have much experience hosting a book club, and, I don't talk, so I was hoping you would be a part of my book discussion too! We're going to read Scaredy Squirrel Makes a Friend. I think this would be the perfect book for two bears who a new friends to read. Can't wait to hear what you think!
Well kids, you've heard it from me! If you come to my book discussion during Winter Break, you might just get two bears for the price of one! Oh boy. Am I excited. Can't wait to see you there!

Thorndyke here. I found out there's another Blogging Bear, named Sleepy Bear way across the country in the Seattle, Washington area. You can see his blog right here! Now, I haven't met many other bears that blog, so I'm curious and want to be friends. Washington state is really far away. Do you know anything about it? Maybe Sleepy Bear will tell us all about it.
Maybe we can be Cyber Pen Pals! Do you know what pen pals are? Back before there was the internet or email people used to write letters, put stamps on them and put them in the mail to send to people! And then the other person would write back! It took a lot longer than email, but was sure a lot of fun!
So Sleepy Bear, if you're reading this, write back and let's be friends!
What do you think, kids? Will we hear from Sleepy Bear? I sure hope so! Until next time,
