Purpose of this Blog...

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!

Waiting for the Little Someone who will fill these shoes...

Today was a cozy day:  my French Press wore a cozy this morning and my feet got to wear slippers!  Nice to finally have some fall weather!

I spent the morning digging through, washing, and sorting old treasures that had been stashed away in plastic storage bins out in our garage...
Hard to believe my oldest son wore these little guys 27 years ago;
now they're all washed and ready for our little Peter Ensley, whose due date is tomorrow!

In between loads of laundry and after breakfast,

I cooked, (freezing for later)

and cleaned,

hoping my daughter was resting - and almost done nesting!  (We'll see, since after eight weeks on bed rest she is now up and around, but Baby Peter is taking his sweet time coming!)

These board books (each with a finger puppet) by Sara Gillingham and Lorena Siminovich are just adorable! (baby - 3 years old) Layered die-cut pages allow a peek at all the colorful things that make up each animal's home, and an adorable folk-art style finger puppet make these books perfect for baby/toddler reading and playtime fun.
