Baby's Birthday

Well, it is my baby's birthday today. It is hard to believe that she is now 1 year old. She is the light of our lives and the most precious gift we will ever be given. So, like any normal child she has received several great gifts. There are the toys and clothes, but also there are the books. Due to her surrounding family, the baby really isn't going to have a chance to be a non-book person. Everyone in the family has some type of book or books they enjoy. On my side of the family it has never been unusual to see someone with a book to their nose. Even my couch potato brother, who would rather watch anything sports related, loves a good book and reads a lot. And, of course, my husband's family are very literature-oriented as well. And having Luke and Frema as her Uncle and soon to be Aunt, will certainly enhance her writing abilities as well. So, no matter her destination, she will most likely get there with books as a constant companion.

So, two of the books she received for her birthday were:
One Fish, Two Fish, Three, Four, Five, Fish! (Dr. Seuss Nursery Collection) by Dr. Seuss (A perfect gift chosen by her Daddy.) This is a modified version of the original One fish two fish red fish blue fish book.

The Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle Treasury by Betty MacDonald (a looking ahead gift from her CA Aunt.) This is a book that includes the three MacDonald works of Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Magic, and Hello, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle. This will be a great read for her when she is a bit older (K-4), but in the meantime I get a chance to peruse it first. This series is getting very difficult to find, so seek it out soon. The kids from the elementary library I used to work at loved this series. (For those who aren't familiar or too young to remember, the Ma and Pa Kettle series/movies was based from the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books.)

Happy Birthday Baby!
