Goose recently read It’s Raining Cupcakes by Lisa Schroeder.
Yes, another AR assignment. She really seemed to enjoyed this one. The storyline was more suited for her age level than some of our past reads. Amazon sums it up nicely.
“12 year old Isabel spends her free time in the library, reading and dreaming about faraway places. When her mom decides to open a cupcake shop in their little town of Willow, Isabel feels just like buttercream frosting to a cupcake-stuck. It seems as if it will be another disappointing summer, until Isabel learns of a baking contest. If she can come up with a winning recipe, she might have a chance of competing in the bake-off in New York City! But Isabel’s best friend, Sophie, is also entering the contest, and things always seem to go Sophie’s way. To make matters worse, Isabel and her mom don’t exactly see eye-to-eye on the type of recipe Isabel should enter. In this sweet treat by popular teen author Lisa Schroeder, Isabel discovers that maybe it’s not about where you go in life as much as it is about enjoying the view from wherever you are.”
It was shortly after Goose finished this book that I spotted a Christmas ornament tutorial. Of course she wanted to make everyone in her class one, along with all the girls on her gymnastics team.. Here’s her list. 🙂
