Spring has sprung!

P1010338

Do you remember how it felt after a long winter and finally spring comes? Some of my first memories are visual. I remember flowers starting to grow. It was great just getting outside to play and get all that good fresh air.

Perhaps we adults need to take a hint from the younger children and get out and smell the fresh air and take a walk. A nice walk with your child can be fun as you look for the hint of spring.

Of course I have been pondering where Count Candy Corn is, in the meantime I decided I am going to just enjoy the flowers and the fresh air. How many flowers have you seen today?

What Count Candy Corn is all about

Maddix’s adventure begins by finding a triangular shaped object on the ground. When Maddix approaches his mother, he finds out that the object is a piece of candy corn. This prompts Maddix’s mother to recall a story that her great aunt told her about Count Candy Corn.

Maddix’s mother takes the opportunity to guide her son into searching for the truth. This is where the adventure begins for Madddix as the candy corn disappears out of the dish he made for it.¬†This surprises both Maddix and his mother. Where did the candy go?

A brave plan is put together by Maddix with the assistance of his mother. When the bell on the door rings startling Maddix, he has to muster all his courage to get up and face what lurks behind his door. He opens the door to a surprising find.

Maddix’s mother praises her son by giving him a hug for learning how to count and for facing his fears.

What was behind the door? You’ll have to read the book to find out!
