This giveaway is now CLOSED. Thanks for playing, everyone, except the person who spammed me. And the winner is...lilbabypug! She forgot to give me a book recommendation but when I asked she came up with The Saggy Baggy Elephant, a classic Golden Book. We already have it, but it's nice to hear someone else loves the old ones as much as I do.
Other recommendations: So many people loved Where the Wild Things Are. We actually have it but haven't read it much yet. I think it's a little over her head. But we have Sendak's Nutshell Kids series, and my daughter loves One Was Johnny: A Counting Book. And I love to sing it to her, a la the Really Rosie musical from the seventies. Alligators All Around is the only alphabet I know that has "Having Headaches" for the letter "H" and I can soooo relate to that. Freight Train was another book mentioned that I've heard of but not tried, and since it's a train book, I figure I better check it out. Many of the others we already have, but there were a couple I'd never heard of, so thanks again to you all for sharing!
Today, kids, we have one of my handmade ATC's with Mr. Seahorse, my carved rubber stamps, in 3-D. I call this one "Seahorse Architecture. So what should I ask you to leave a comment about today? How about this: If you have kids, or remember being a child, what was a favorite picture book? I'm always looking for new ones for my almost 2-yr. old. And don't say "all the Dr. Suess books," because that's just cheating. So I'll tell you, one of my current faves and my daughter's is one called And the Train Goes... by William Bee. The illustrations are fabulous and have many levels, like once she gets a little older, she'll start to notice there are certain items that show up on every spread, so she can hunt those down as well as listen to the fun story and sounds. Okay, I gotta run. Leave your comments until close of day (midnite) Wednesday and thanks for playing.
