Quotes from The Tiny Baker

  • “When all is right, they sit back down, Retrieve their hat or smooth their gown And sip their sweet rose-hip iced tea While Cricket chirps his melody”

Favorite pastime? Reading with my kids. Just finished Nana Cracks the Case!
5.5 / 7.0

Fun costuming for the characters!

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
6.25 / 7.0

This wonderfully charming book is full of all things sweet—in treats, in messages of friends, kindness, and helping others, and in surprisingly endearing illustrations of darling bugs and yummy treats. The rhyming complements the story, and the text is packed full of fabulous vocabulary. If you need another reason to love it, check out all the details in the illustrations (like the Swiss Roll pillow!).

Mom of Boys
Mom of three little boys who love books about dragons, whangdoodles and magic.
