A wise man once told me that libraries should be revered like Churches, Mosques, Synagogues, Cathedrals and Ashrams. So much knowledge, time and effort is contained in one place. It should be revered, a link to our past and future. Interesting thought, at the time I remember thinking that was crazy. But now I see how special libraries are-- the people who can't afford books, movies, DVDs, CDs (LIKE ME) can read a wealth of information.
A few books that we’re so glad we found:We did come home with a few glossy Bob the Builder and Barney choices... Um, not what I was thinking in the way of books, but surprisingly these little classics above, won out for bedtime reading. Seems my children will take beautiful over commercial-based books too! Yay!
My Little Red Umbrella
This little gem has wonderful illustrations and “Mom look there are kitties!”
We bought the first Babar book at our local thrift shop for a dime, this book helps us continue the story. And, again I love the illustrations!
The Girl in the Castle Inside the Museum
What a wonderful little, dream-like story that tackles some issues like loneliness and friendship. When Izzo realized she was lonely for friends, she asked, “Mom, can she come live with us?”-- so sweet.
The Little House
The story of the little house, the passage of time and how cities expanded over countryside. One of my new favorites.
Derek the Knitting Dinosaur
“Mom, he does the thing with the stick-knitting like YOU do!!” So cool.
Any good books you’re reading/checking out? I’m always looking for more!
