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

Hurry, Hurry, Mary Dear
Erik Blegvad illustrates his good friend, N.M. Bodecker's funny poem about a put-upon woman busily preparing for winter. She must pick apples, chop firewood, churn butter, smoke hams, sew and cook and clean. As she gets more and more disheveled and exhausted looking, you see her fat husband lounging in his chair, looking quite comfortable and you share her sentiments exactly! It's all in good fun and Blegvad's pictures are as delightful as always.
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.
