We just took the girls for our annual trip to the see The Nutcracker Ballet this past weekend. Kenley is really into the story and loved the nutcracker that Alice the Elf brought her that morning that she broke it's arm like Fritz and now has to take care of it like a good nurse like Clara. We have a Little Golden Book version of the story, but I would love to add one of these two copies to our library for their gorgeous illustrations.
Kenley is definitely our little artist. Crayons, markers, paint, they are definitely her favorite way to pass the time. We love Julia Denos illustrations (I Had a Favorite Dress and Grandma's Gloves), and can't wait to add Swatch to our collection. I Don't Draw, I Color! is basically Kenley's second life motto.... right behind famous words of Ricky Bobby "If you ain't first, you're last".
Ashlynn would love any of the stories involving make believe. We heard that Mimi was sending some of her fairies down south with their own doorway, so http://amzn.to/2gZp73J would be a great compliment. Henry's Bright Idea is like a new spin on Winnie the Pooh with all of today's favorite woodland creatures belonging to the Walnut Animal Society.
Last, we've noticed that a majority of our favorite stories include our favorite furry four-legged friends. Antoinette is the follow up to the beloved Gaston, and Miss Moon the story of a Dog Governess who imparts all her knowledge and advice that can go beyond the dog park.
