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

The Angel and the Soldier Boy
Here is a neat wordless book that tells an adventure story about a soldier and angel doll. While a little girl is sleeping, some pirates (from the bedtime book she was reading?) steal treasure from her piggy bank. The soldier goes off to right the injustice. But I like that in the end it's up to the little angel doll to brave the house (hiding from a cat, climbing up a house plant, fighting a wasp) to rescue the soldier and the stolen treasure.
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.
