Did someone ask about books???
Oh yes, we've got 'em.
Lots of them...all over the house.
Here are some of the choices from our local
library this week....
For Little Man..Princess is trying to get him to build with blocks.
Block City by Robert Louis Stevenson
Illustrator David Kirk lends his illustrations to the classic poem.
We have been enjoying this.
Goldfish and Chrysanthemums by Andrea Cheng and illustrated by Michelle Chang (Thanks Nina!)
Princess loves this book about a little girl trying to recreate a piece of her NiNi's (Grandmother)
happy childhood memories.
No Dragons for Tea fire safety for kids Jean Pendziwol and Martine Gourbault
We all know what happens when Dragons say achoo...fire.
Chicken in the Kitchen by Tony Johnston and Eleanor Taylor
Funny book about a chicken in a kitchen...she's a pokin' like the dickens.
The drawings are colorful and fun as is the story.
Special Gifts by Cynthia Rylant and Wendy Anderson Halperin is a sweet book
about three cousins who have three weeks off of school for winter vacation.
They request sewing lessons to make all the pillows,dolls and vests they want.
We got this book out to talk about the winter solstice.
Hilary Knight's The Twelve Days of Christmas
Princess is in love with Eloise, and has been singing this song over and over,
so when we saw this book in a library display, we had to bring it home.
