Hello, everyone, and Happy Booknificent Thursday! I hope you have had a wonderful week! I have been enjoying reading Heidi Ashworth’s Miss Delacourt series this week, which I was very excited to see is available on Kindle Unlimited! I reviewed Miss Armistead Makes Her Choice, the 6th one in the series, last year without realizing it was part of a series, so I’m glad to get caught up with the others.
Our little guy’s second birthday is coming up in a few weeks and my mom is coming from the US just before it, so I took the opportunity to build up our “boy library” a little and purchased the following gems from Amazon:
The Boy with a Drum by David Harrison – This book comes very highly recommended by a friend who raised three boys who are now in their 20s. We laughed when she was telling me about it because she can still quote the book verbatim! That’s a sign of a real winner to me.
Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle – This one has been recommended to me so many times by so many people that I have lost count. We can’t wait to read it ourselves!
Sergeant Hippo’s Busy Week by Wong Herbert Yee – We absolutely love Wong Herbert Yee’s Fireman Small so my two older girls decided to buy this one for their little brother’s birthday. I’m excited to listen to them read it to him (and the coming baby as well) over and over!
I also picked up a couple more classic Golden Books that the girls and I are pretty excited about including Nurse Nancy by Kathryn Jackson. We noticed it is illustrated by Corinne Malvern who also illustrated Doctor Dan the Bandage Man by Helen Gaspard which is a read-it-over-and-over, all-time favorite around here.
How about you? Have you picked up any good books this week? We’d love to hear your recommendations either in the link-up itself or in the comments below! Also, I was thrilled this week to see that Gia, one of the authors that links up here, posted the link to last week’s link-up on her facebook wall and invited her friends to come for a visit! This is a great way to grow our community, so thanks for the inspiration, Gia!
