BOOKS!

Well, the end of the school year came and went, and I received a LOT of gift cards for Barnes and Noble from families. Thanks to those and my teacher discount, I purchased NINETEEN new books for school. (I technically own them, but I will keep them at school and use them in the classroom.) Here's a list of what I bought:

Diary of a Worm (Doreen Cronin)
Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type (Doreen Cronin)
Bill and Pete (Tomie dePaola)
Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain (Verna Aardema)
Tough Boris (Mem Fox)
Hattie and the Fox (Mem Fox)
A Letter to Amy (Ezra Jack Keats)
The Doorbell Rang (Pat Hutchins)
Everybody Needs A Rock (Byrd Baylor)
Peppe the Lamplighter (Elisa Bartone)
Fritz and the Beautiful Horses (Jan Brett)
The Great Kapok Tree (Lynne Cherry)
Frederick (Leo Lionni)
Tikki Tikki Tembo (Arlene Mosel)
Thunder Cake (Patricia Polacco)
The True Story of the Three Little Pigs (Jon Sciesza)
Abiyoyo (Pete Seeger)
Sheep Take A Hike (Nancy Shaw)
Shrek! (William Steig)

It was so nice to bulk up my collection of children's books!

Hello Catherine! First, I want to thank you for your commentaries on my blog. And I agree Children's books are the best. I used to love the scolastics catalogs they had at Fraser. I swear I could have bought the whole thing!! By the way, how is your chicken? Does she have post traumatic stress syndrome and can not come near a door?
Oh, and I'm feeling much better!
Love,
Laure

If you need any MORE books, Bound to Be Read on Grand Avenue near my apartment is closing (sniff sniff) and having an everything-must-go sale. Right now, everything in the store is 40 percent to 50 percent off. Check it out!
