Books from our bookpile...
Well, it's Monday, so here is a list of some of the books we are reading from our local library right now;
Frederick by Leo Lionni
What's not to love? Adorable pictures and a story sure to warm your heart as winter's chill sets in!
Princess really enjoyed that he was telling them a story, as she enjoys storytelling herself.
Thanks to Nina for another great book idea!
I believe it was Nina who told me to run , not walk to get Miss Rumphious by Barbara Cooney
to read to Princess.We shall be forever grateful!We loved the story, the pictures.
The idea that you need to do something to make the world more beautiful is such a lovely one to give our children. It also made me think of Mariposa.
We also took out Play With Me by Marie Hall Ets on her recommendation.
This was a very sweet story about a little girl who finally gets the animals to stay near her, by being quiet
and still. Princess may never truly learn this lesson, but she did enjoy the story.
In the Garden,who's been here? by Lindsay Barrett George, is right up our alley!
"Something's been eating the seeds in the middle of the sunflower. I wonder... Who's been here?"
We've been going through a lot of this, "who's been here?" around our garden this year.
The pictures alone are worth getting this book.
Dancers In The Garden by Joanne Ryder with illustrations by Judith Lopez
is a delightful book about hummingbirds visiting a garden.
We have not seen one in our garden since we started reading this book, but we have been looking.
It is still raining here, so we will cuddle under a soft blanket and read together.
Just me, my little girl, and a pile of books.......
