For my friends who kept asking me for a children's book list...
Thursday, April 26, 2012
We really haven't gotten our share of April showers this year, but the flowers are blooming nonetheless. We've always loved the story in this book. It's interesting that a common devise in fairy/folk tales is a childless couple longing for a child of their own. Here there's a good dose of magic, love, nature and a bittersweet but happy ending.
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.
