Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Who are big fans of Harry Potter here?

I do! And I love it so much I keep growing my collection of the complete series of it :).

So far, I have all the books in English, bahasa Indonesia, and now we have new additions, the pictorial books of Harry Potter series. Jim Kay illustrations to the stories of Harry, Ron, Hermione and friends’ adventures are indeed incredible! I have got the first 2 pictorial books, the Philosopher’s Stone and the Chamber of Secrets, last year. So when I saw the third pictorial book is coming, I didn’t think too much nor too long, I just snatched it!.

So, do you like Harry Potter as well?Do you collect the books? Which one is your favorite?

Yipppeeee…it’s Pippi Longstocking…

Holaaaa….ada yang suka buku cerita Pippi Longstocking?

Aku sukaaaa…ceritanya bener-bener “nyeleneh’ and Astrid Lindgren really built up a new set of ‘wonderland’ Β with wild monkey, horse and Villa Villekulla :)…well, at least for me πŸ˜‰

Then..agaiiin…as I’ve done it in a couple of weeks ago, I searched for it in my fave thrifty books website and found 3 books of Pippi :). Pippi Longstocking, Pippi in the South Sea and Pippi Goes on Board ..And now, those books have arrived..Yippeee yippeee :p.

Busy days with Pippi Longstockings are comiiiing :)…

Map of the world’s creatures…

Do you like funny creatures on the tell-tale story book or from the movies?

You know…mermaid, angel, leprechaun, fairies, elves, gnomes, spinx, yetty, nessy, ….dementor? Well, the last is obviously the least funny creature :D. I am so fascinated by them as I read and lived with them through all the books I’ve read.

On our last trip to NYPL, I found the map of the creatures of the world.. Interesting! It brings back the childhood memories that I have. Hmm..I am actually thinking of buying oneΒ β™₯

Clifford, the big red dog….

Look who’s hereeee….Obi and Clifford, the big red dog :D..

Although she looks soooo small compared to that canine celebrity, but Obi can’t hide her excitement to pose with him in one of the corners of the New York Public Library’s kids corner :).

Yuuup…we went there last week and had a blast with Bo et Obi freely choose their own books and asked mama to read them. Well, except for Bo, as he is reading now :). So proud of him, as we know exactly how hard it is to adjust everything from his school in Indonesia.

Well, I guess, we’ll spend more time here :D….coming back and forth to our lovely spot filled with booksΒ β™₯

Wake up, Bo …

Ada yang masih bobooo niiih… padahal udah jam 7 pagi hehehe

Setelah semalem bacain mama buku winter days in the big woods, Bo kecapean kayaknya :). Ceritanya, selama home schooling sambil tunggu rumah dan daftar sekolah untuk termin berikutnya, Bo banyak latihan baca dan matematika di rumah, Mostly sama Bapak, karena mama kerja hiiks. Tapi kalau malam, drilling baca giliran mamaaa…so, last night, we managed to finish Winter Days in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Yuup…ini buku favorit mama, terus ditulis ulang dan dibuat edisi bergambar untuk anak-anak.

Bagus deh.cerita diambil dari penggalan buku aslinya dengan hanya mengambil segmen musim dingin. Di sini laura cerita bagaimana mereka mempersiapkan musim dingin..mulai dari Pa yang setiap hari berburu untuk persediaan daging mereka, Ma dan anak-anak, termasuk Laura dan Mary, her sister, yang berkebun dan memanen hasilnya untuk disimpan selama musim dingin, sampai membersihkan rumah :). Terus Laura juga cerita serunya musim dingin..mulai dari bermain di kaca penuh embun dan salju sampai snowball. Quite entertaining deh pokoknya…

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do Bo :)…
