  1. My son loved Veggie Tales when he was younger. We actually saw a Chipotle commercial lately with vegetables being treated like royalty, and he thought it was a Veggie Tales movie preview. Haha.

    You have a lot of heavy titles on your list. Good luck! I have Pax on my list of kids books to read too. Can’t remember where I saw it mentioned either.

  2. I’ve read a Mary Roach book before and enjoyed it. I like her humor and twist on things. Seeing the Veggie Tales devotional makes me miss the time when that is all our kids would watch. We loved the Veggie Tales and still quote them with our teenagers today. Thanks for the link up!
