So we have been terribly sick here and between the unpleasantries (that I will not expand upon here) I have not done any of the cool posts I was going to do this week. We made these great little spiders that even my husband liked and I wanted to post them and we were going to make cool little pumpkin cake pops inspired by the great Bakerella and that has all gone to the way-side due to my affliction GRRR! So instead I decided to tell you all about a few of our favorite books.
The first is "Love You Forever" by Robert Munsch. My friend Zina gave this to me before my first baby was born. I read it and thought what is the big deal? Then he was born. To this day I can't read it without sobbing. It really is a great book you can order it here.
The next three are kid favorites "A Frog Thing", "Ellison the Elephant", and "Leo the Lightning Bug" all by Eric Drachman. I love them because they come with an audio CD read by the author so you really get his take on the story and also I don't have to read (oh did I say that out loud?). And the kids love it because they can do it all by themselves. These were all gifts from my mom to the kids for holidays. You can order those here .
Anyway hope you will take this in leu of what I REALLY wanted to post this week. Oh just in case; no one paid me to say these things, no one asked me to say these things and I did not receive anything for doing this post. I just really like these books and thought I would tell you so.
