All wonderful, wonderful books and perfect hammock reading. Next trip to the library, try ANDREW HENRY'S MEADOW, MISS RUMPHIUS, and THE MONEY TREE. You won't be disappointed.lurban
Oh I love those books! It looks & sounds like you're having a great time.
Ah, uncanny! ALL (but the Maine book) of these were hanging around our house a long time ago. I second "Miss Rumphius."
oh, those are my favorites!
We love Blueberries for Sal! Our library has a copy accompanied by a cassette tape (circa 1970's?) It's pretty hokey, but my son loves it - there are songs and sing-alongs on the flip side.
indeed, fantastic books! blueberries for sal is a huge hit at my house right now! the little one just discovered blueberries herself -- you might imagine the squeals as we turn the pages.
We keep renewing the McCloskey treasury -- my daughter is fond of Old Sneep in "Lentil". Enjoy!
We *love* Robert McCloskey! Our favorites are Lentil & One Morning in Maine, especially since DD has her first loose tooth. Enjoy!
Make Way for Ducklings! Oh, my gosh, my favorite early childhood book! And I'm talking a childhood of over 40 years ago. Of course, I read it to mine, too, when they were little!Reading to your kids has to be one of the best things about being a parent. I just loved that cuddle time!
Loved courduroy as a kid...need to find that in the library next time.
Oh, Michigan. Now you're really making me homesick. . . . Sigh!You've captured it perfectly.
they all look wonderful...i'll have to check them out next time i'm cruising the library aisles.
They make me want to live in Maine!
