For my friends who kept asking me for a children's book list...

Christmas in a Barn
Charlotte is singing "Away in a Manger" at our church's Christmas program this year. She's very excited that she gets to dress as a sheep. Along with practicing her song, we've been reading this sweet book. It's illustrated by one of our favorites, Barbara Cooney, and tells the story of Mary and Joseph and baby Jesus born in the stable with all the animals around.
I have one husband, three children, two cats and a house full of too many books to count. I love to read, ride my bike, bake, develop my own photographs, and I've been known to neglect all housework to play with my kids.
