Read this Week

Flora’s Surprise by Debi Gliori – A new-to-us book about one of our very favorite bunnies. Flora is growing a house. At first it seems as if her experiment has failed, but wait? Is that a spring surprise?

Flora’s Blanket by Debi Gliori – This is our favorite Flora. Her blanket has gone missing and Flora is getting more distraught by the moment. The Rabbit family searches in vain until the end of the book. Truly a family favorite here.

Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion – Jessica’s son loves this treasury about a fun loving, silly dog. In one story Harry receives a rather interestingly colored sweater and tries to get rid of it anyway he can. Always tickles our funny bone.

Peek-a-Boo by Janet and Allan Ahlberg – A board book you won’t mind reading again and again. A rhyming story about a day in the life of a baby. Most beloved by Jessica’s two-year-old.
