...and green! (eco-friendly, but also the color.) Okay, sorry. Enough with the puns.
I was in Barnes & Noble yesterday drooling over their leatherbound classics, when this awesome Rudyard Kipling JUNGLE BOOK-inspired reusable bag caught my eye! (And it was only $1.99.)
Other titles I saw included A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Gone With the Wind (also in green...and lovely!) You could use these totes for books, groceries, lunch, the beach - the possibilities are endless! I would post a link here, but couldn't find them on B&N's website.
The classics? I came away with a couple of those too - most are only $10.00. Here are some of my favorites:
Purpose of this Blog...
My original intent in creating this blog was to provide a resource (and some encouragement) for new moms and dads who want to spend time reading aloud to their children, but may not know where to begin. But it's really also for any adults (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, Godparents, teachers etc.) who have children/teens in their lives and want to help them foster a lifelong relationship with books. You may have noticed that not all books are equal in capturing children's imaginations and in cultivating those innocent, tender souls...my goal is to help you find the ones that do!
