Favorite Titles

“You may have tangible wealth untold: Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold. Richer than I you can never be – I had a mother who read to me.”
-Strickland Gillian, ‘The Reading Mother”

We are always knee-deep in (well-chewed) books around here.  I thought I'd pull a few favorites off the shelf to share.

Two favorites both come from Barefoot Books:

Other current favorites are by Peter Sis.  The little boy is named Matt, so these books are clearly meant to live at our house!  These books capture the imagination of a little boy just perfectly.


While we were on our camping trip in Michigan, we happened upon a wonderful bookshop in Cheboygan called Log Marks Bookstore.  Matias picked out a signed copy of a new local book about Mackinac Island by Jennifer Margaret Powell.  It is a counting book, and it even has pictures of "our" carriage horses, Sunny and Stormy (or at least Matias thinks so!).
