If your child has a Grandparent or another loved one who is travelling, or lives too far away
to see often, this book might be a nice comfort. Little Cottontail misses his Grandfather
who has travelled all the way across the great green meadow.As Mother Cottontail harvests
sweet red clover, and wild lettuces, they talk about what Grandfather misses about
Little Cottontail, his "snuggly hugs", and smiles...Little Cottontail decides to "send" his hugs
to Grandfather on the wind, and his smiles with the clouds...in a delightful story filled with gentle watercolors that with soothe you both. Princess still really misses her Poppa, and because
of his ill health, doesn't get to see her Grandpa often either, so she enjoyed thinking about ways
to let him know she thinks of him.We read this in honor of Fathers Day I suppose, although
for my little Princess, every day is Fathers Day.
Are You Going To Be Good?
It is almost pajama time, but little Robert is not going to bed,
he is getting dressed up in his "going to a party" clothes to attend his Great Gran Sadie's
100Th Birthday party. His Mom,Dad and Big Sister all warn him to be good, and they practice their "please" and "thank yous" all during the drive.This story is adorable, giving you a child's eye view of all they have to go through and how they view our adult ideas of a "party".
Through out the evening, everyone admonishes Robert.."don't do that.."
the only one who enjoys his childlike enthusiasm is Great Gran Sadie, who kicks her shoes off
and dances with him..it did make Princess a little sad that Great Grandma wouldn't make it to
"100", but she has high hopes for her Nana! So do we!!Sorry this is so late, but I thought I set it up to post on Tuesday, and never came back to check it. I will be back Wednesday afternoon, with the BIG SUMMER NEWS...that I have been promising. ((hugs))KateinNJ
