monday marvels...

five favorite children's books...
all of tasha tudor books are wonderful. her illustrations are real marvels.
"We had a small post office in those days. Valentines
came by Sparrow post."

this was one of my favorite books as a child.
it was out of print for a long time but was recently published again.
"It's not that I do not like people," said she,
but one gets a bit shy when one lives in a tree."

a simple classic appropriate for the long winter days ahead of us.
"The postman said it looked like snow. The farmer said it smelled like snow."

perhaps a favorite for everyone. love this book.
"Then he looked up into the tree. And what do you think he saw?"

this richard scary book is delightful!
"Sometimes the bus is crowded. The polite elephant always offers his seat to a lady."

  9. Thanks for sharing such great children's books, I am heading right over to Amazon to check these out, we are always looking for new ideas as I feel like we read a lot of the same books over and over again. One of our all time favorites is Our Animal Friends at Maple Hill Farm. I always get a little misty eyed at the end when they talk about, "the animals that have been, the animals that are and the animals that will be"...
