Riley was ready to find books right away! She led us (my mom, her G) to the back wall and began her search.
She found lots of good books. And then had a lie down for a while to rest.
She does make me laugh.
We picked out Feast For 10 by Cathryn Falwell, a book we’ve read before, but a great one at any time – especially around Thanksgiving.
We got The Flea’s Sneeze by Lynn Downey and illustrated by Karla Firehammer. We enjoyed the repetition of this one.
Duck Sock Hop by Jane Kohuth and illustrated by Jane Porter was fun to read.
For You Are A Kenyan Child by Kelly Cunnane and art by Ana Juan was a beautifully illustrated story.
Hush! A Fantasy In Verse by Dominic Catalano, a modern take on the Hush, Little Baby lullaby, where all a little girl wants is a hug.
Every Year On Your Birthday by Rose Lewis and illustrated by Jane Dyer was a touching story about an adopted girl.
The Quilt Story by Tony Johnston and pictures by Tomie dePaola made me want to learn how to sew. . .
I really enjoyed the books we brought home, and Riley did too.
