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!

On with my "40 Books for 40 Days" CHRISTMAS BOOK LIST...
I think I'll let these books speak for themselves!  Enjoy Jan Pienkowski's gorgeous silhouette art from THE FIRST CHRISTMAS and THE FIRST NOEL.

  1. Gorgeous! I think I could seriously break the bank if I went into a bookstore and just decided to buy all the children's books that I wanted.

  2. Me too! Thank goodness for our local library.
    But there are always some books I want to own - especially Christmas books. :)
