Renoir’s Colors by Marie Sellier is one of those wonderful, rare board books that offers even very young children a window into art. each picture is offered first behind a small flap to open and then as the full painting. Nico loves it!
Wilderness Cat is written by the same author as last year’s Christmas book. it’s part Laura Ingalls, part James Harriet. just lovely. (thanks, Nana!)
One Morning in Maine is perfect for big sisters interested in teeth falling out and bird feathers who like to eat ice cream and clam chowder. in other words, the book is perfect for Mabel.
recently Mabel was looking at an alphabet poster and wished aloud that she could work on the sign language alphabet too. so we went to the library and this wonderful story book called Little Beauty was one of the best finds. great illustrations, a good story, lots of whimsy. we read it lots!
yeah, we read this one lots too. lots.
