The Wild Wild West

Affiliate links are included in this post. 

The theme for this month's Poppin's Book Nook is "The Wild West."  

One of the book series that my son has checked out repeatedly from our library is the Adventures of Tintin books. Our library has these compilations that include several stories in each volume. The very first one The Adventures of Tintin, Vol. 1 includes Tintin in America which unexpectedly (at least to Tintin) turns into a Wild West adventure.

Earlier this year we were delighted to review Diana Waring's Experience History Through Music collection including Westward Ho: The Heart of the Old West. Read that review here.

  1. Does "cookin' up some vittles" count? Tell me more about being a Poppins Book Nook Blogger, please?

  2. Lynn, that sounds fitting for this theme. Are you offering to share vittles? Jill at Enchanted Homeschooling Mom coordinates these posts, and I was blessed to join her this year. Each blog link shares a post centered around a book (or books) related to the theme. Many also share related activities. Joseph is reading on his own more now, and we have fun finding books that fit each theme. Click on the links to read some of the other posts.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this info with Lynn!
    The Adventures of Tintin is a book my son loves too!

    Thank you for helping to bring a spoonful of reading fun to the Poppins Book Nook this month!

  4. Sounds like a great giveaway.
