Since things have settled down a bit, I’m back to doing stuff with Lil’ Bit again. On purpose & intentionally, I mean. I’ve starting gathering books for holidays now that she’s old enough to look forward to them & kind of get an idea as to what they’re about.
Our first acquisition was actually brought to us by my Mother-in-law. We love all things Snoopy/Peanuts around here. Happy Valentine’s Day, Sweet Babboo! is a great little book. Large colorful pictures and small amounts of text per page mean it could be read to a small child without boring them. This is primarily a tale of Sally being upset because Linus didn’t get her anything for Valentine’s Day. She tells Charlie Brown to punch him in a funny comedy of errors in true Charlie Brown fashion.
The next book, The Night Before Valentine’s Day, is another recent acquisition, thanks to Paperback Swap. This is a fun book because it sticks so closely to the rhythm of Twas the Night Before Christmas without feeling forced. A super cute book!
Our last book, Clifford’s Valentine’s Day, was also got through Paperback Swap. It has everyone’s favorite red dog & of course it isn’t as good as the original (are they ever?), BUT it does have two books in one — Clifford’s First Valentine’s Day & Clifford We Love You. I’m always about getting more bang for my buck :).
