Hi friends
The days are shorter and the nights are longer - it's perfect for snuggly bedtimes with your little ones and their PJ books.
It's almost time to think about Chanukah - your book selections are Chanukah themed and we are busy planning a very special Chanukah Dance Party on Sunday December 15th.
PJ Our Way families please remember to log on to your accounts (between November 1st and 10th) and choose your November books.
Remember to let me know if you have moved or know of any new families (and babies) who should join our growing PJ Family.

Rugelach, twisted up pastries, are an awesome treat that most kids can help make. Here are five variations --including a semi-homemade shortcut to enjoy with your family.
