They are giving away a signed copy of Dear Mrs. Parks: A Dialogue with Today's Youth in honor of Black History Month. For more information and to enter visit here.

From Your Hostess:
This week Hazel had school vacation. I need a vacation from her vacation week. I feel like it was non-stop on the go. We had many play dates and not much down time at home, so there were not as many posts as usual, but we did share a review of the book, The Day No One Played Together by Donalisa Helsley, Our Presidents' Day crafts and books to learn about George Washington and Abe Lincoln, our Canada post for Around the World in 12 Dishes, and some Hawaiian Dreaming with a fun musical craft and links to Daria's giveaway of pu'ili (Hawaiian rhythm sticks) and a ukelele!
