Book Bag: March

I love how I quite often just stop at a shelf in the library and pick out several books that are exactly fitting for us at the time. The Apple Pie That Papa Baked... just in time for Pi Day. Those Darn Squirrels... well, if you know us, you know that's always fitting. Klippity Klop - suits M's love of We're Going on A Bear Hunt, and includes a dragon, knight and horses.

More details from our March Book Bag... the especially beloved (by my tykes) are marked with ****

  3. Wake up, it's spring! / Lisa Campbell Ernst
  4. Fin M'Coul : the giant of Knockmany Hill / Tomie de Paola
  5. Llama, llama red pajama / Anna Dewdney.****I think they like this one because they think it's silly that the Llama freaks out when his mom doesn't immediately run to his bidding... of course that doesn't stop them from doing the same.
