It’s that time again! The most wonderful time of the year! We can’t turn on the tv or walk in to a store without being bombarded with ads for the latest flashy toys that promise to stimulate and educate our children.  The truth of the matter is, that while the children will LOVE these toys when they receive them, they will end up bored with them before long. This is because it’s not the bells and whistles that they need to keep them stimulated. Using their imaginations can take them to many wonderful places and is a something that will stay with them for a lifetime. Barefoot books help to spark that imagination and creativity in your child, all while helping them to explore the world around them. So go ahead and get that them that “must have” toy this season but also give them the gift of a Barefoot Book story because  it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

Pumpkin pie french toast

Now that autumn is in full swing many people are enjoying the fun harvest activities and flavors of the season.  It’s a time to bring families together. Some of our favorite activities include picking apples and pumpkins and building a leaf man (aka scarecrow). The little ones love to jump in a newly raked pile of leafs. We also enjoy the flavors of fall. Mmmmm fresh apple pie right out of the oven with a scoop of ice cream or how about some pumpkin pie french toast?  I came across a recipe for this last year and had to try it since my sons favorite pie is pumpkin. It did not disappoint us.  We had such an overwhelming response for this recipe that we decided to share it with you all. I hope you enjoy!

Pumpkin Pie French Toast recipe

3 eggs (or egg whites)                      2 Tbsp milk

1/8 tsp salt                                           1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/2 cup pumpkin                               3 Tbsp sugar

1/4 tsp cinammon                             6 slices firm bread

Mix all ingredients (except for the bread) until smooth.  Pour in to  a shallow dish. Dip each slice of bread in mixture. Grill on a hot skillet until golden brown on each side. Serve hot with syrup (add a spray of whipped cream for an extra treat ) Left over toast can be refrigerated or frozen for later use. You can all make the egg mixture the night before, refrigerate it and use it the next morning.

For me I use egg whites, sugar substitute and gluten free bread.   I would love to hear your feedback.

Enjoy your breakfast with a great story from Barefoot books!!!!

Featured Book

My pick of books for today is “Driving my Tractor”. This story incorporates counting, humor and rhyming as the tractor travels through the different seasons picking up animals along the way. As an additional activity you can make Farmyard Finger Puppets with your child. This will help to enhance what they have learned from the story.  You can copy and paste the following link for instructions on these easy to make fun puppets for your child. /

Remember that it’s never too early to start reading to your children.  A good book will spur their imagination and help to develop their creativity. The knowledge they gain is priceless and the adventures that they will go on…..endless. So I encourage you to dig your toes in the sand and go barefoot with us!!!!
