I hope you’ve been enjoying a relaxing, memorable holiday break. Although I’m not technically back in the office until next week, I’ve been sneaking into the office periodically (read: when Bill takes Catherine to swim practice) to see who’s around and what’s going on.
Following Charlotte’s example at Charlotte’s Library, I thought I would share the new books in our collection. I took these pics on Sunday morning, before we caught up with my brother and his family to exchange gifts, so there is one more book for us Catherine.
As I’ve mentioned before, my Dad is a H-U-G-E reader, so he selects a lot of the books and is the sole giver. In the package of books for Catherine, he added a note that “this is a gift you can enjoy when you snuggle under the covers at night.”
For Catherine …
Ant Attack! (Science Solves It) by Anne James
The Green Dog (Science Solves It) by Melinda Luke
Ivy + Bean Break the Fossil Record and Ivy + Bean Doomed to Dance by Annie Barrows
The Rainbow Mystery (Science Solves It) by Jennifer Dussling
Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein, 25th Anniversary Edition with CD
For Dad Bill …
Gabby: Confessions of a Hockey Lifer by Bruce Boudrous. When Bill saw a review in the Washington Post, his interest was piqued. Dad delivered.
Perfect: Don Larsen’s Miraculous World Series Game and the Men Who Made It Happen by Lew Paper. Dad heard a review of this on NPR and thought of his only son-in-law.
Three Cups of Tea: One Man’s Mission to Promote Peace … One School at a Time by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin. I got this one for Bill
For Mom Me …
Everything I Need to Know I Learned from a Children’s Book by Anita Silvey. This is a book I asked for. Thanks, Dad!
Southern Living Annual Recipes 2009 editors of Southern Living Magazine. Thanks, Mom!
Our gift to each other was our Nook. I can see how it could be addictive. It is easy to manipulate and I love the features.
Now, I will confess that as much as I love books, the coolest gift under the tree was the Build Your Own Kaleidoscope kit my folks gave Catherine. It is SO cool.
