The Book Snob Mom

Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

The illustrations in this book are very fun (Caldecott Honor book, so you'd expect nothing less!) and my favorite part is how detailed they are, with fun little references to Fiddler on the Roof and other cultural phenomena. It is a little moralizing (but it says it will be right up front and doesn't pretend to anything else!) but the lesson is a great one in our throw it away world...reuse and reinvent! It's not personally my favorite book, but I can see why it's beloved.

Mom of Boys

Three little boys who love books about dragons, whangdoodles and magic.

This was a fun little story about using up and wearing out what we have. A great story about recycling our own things in our own way.
