SoCal sunset in March: LadyD Books

Greek Roasted Lamb

I get so excited with all the Easter preparations for my family. Being Greek, we always bake lamb and have red Easter eggs. Perhaps you'd like to try my recipe, How to Bake Greek Roast Lamb.

Jacket Flap:

 "Lulu can't understand people who don't like animals-people like her teacher, Mrs. Holiday. When Lulu tries to help Mrs. Holiday find the perfect pet, she is banned from  bringing an animal to school ever again! Then Lulu rescues an abandoned duck egg. She's going to have to take it to school to keep it safe. But an egg isn't really an animal... At least not yet, anyway."

Stay tuned for my giveaway of one of Hilary McKay books next Friday and you may be interested in her blog tour because it's happening now!

Have you reviewed some chapter books in the past and have a favorite? I discovered a list of 16 books and how to get elementary school kids reading by +Tracy from CityofMotherlyLove
