Current favorite books

Here are three recently-read books which the Maker has declared to be awesome:

Acorn Magic, by Maggie Stern – Simon’s neighbor, Mrs. Potter, gives him a “magic” acorn, which helps him spot animals, then takes him on a camping adventure.  (There are apparently more Simon-and-Mrs.-Potter books; we’re gonna look for the rest.)

What Is A Wookiee?, by Laura Buller and Kate Simkins – “It tells you pretty much every single character in Star Wars, like what a wookiee is, these aliens that keep lizards, R2D2, C3PO, and a bunch more.”

A Giraffe and a Half, by Shel Silverstein – A book-length poem with great illustrations, the Maker was so excited about this one that he read me the entire thing while I fixed lunch.

Update: Had another Giraffe and a Half reading at lunch today.

    Reading about the “giraffe and a half” makes me think to tell you that we have two new baby giraffes at the Memphis Zoo!!! I hope to see them soon. Wish I had someone to read me a story while I fix lunch! Keep up the good reading!

  2. I love this kind of documentation. I wish I had done this all along for all three of the boys. Glad you’re doing it now!
