Welcome back to the 2nd post in the Poppin's Book Nook! 
I am so excited to be participating in this brand new virtual book club with so many other fun and creative bloggers! Each month we are given a theme and each participating blogger is free to choose their own book within that theme. We post about our book and any related activities or crafts we did based on the book, on the last Monday of every month. With so many bloggers participating, your will see a wide range of books and activities within each months theme!

March's theme is 

and we have chosen the book

"The Wizard" really is a unique book. The illustrations, by Brandon Dorman, are absolutely amazing! 
It's not a happy-go-lucky type of book, but I really wouldn't call it "dark" at all either. It cleverly rhymes while telling the story of a gloomy wizard conjuring up potions and turning a frog into several other animals, before last turning him back into a frog and leaving you to wonder if his next "victim" is a within a group of children playing outside his tower. It really is so interesting! My oldest "L" (4 1/2) really loved it! 

We decided to conjure up some of our own potions!
