Fun New Kid's Book

by Adam Rex

Saw a quick blurb in the Book World about this and thought it looked like fun. Went to popular local kids' store today to see if they had it. YAY! There was a copy just waiting for me to pick it up and look.

This is an adorable book for boys or girls aged approximately 4-6. If a kid you know likes to go to the zoo, check it out. A little girl visits the zoo and all the animals start pssting to get her attention. They all want her to go and get something at the store for them that they need. The illustrations are detailed and clever, and the humor is dryly hilarious.

Needless to say, picked this up for a Christmas present for S. (aged 4). So sure am I that he will love it that I wish Christmas were today so I could give it to him right now. Oh well, anticipation is half the fun.

If you haven't read On The Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman, you must. I love it. All creation celebrates the child's birth. I gave it to a baby on the occasion of her baptism and it will be a gift many more times.

Hey Nancita - great suggestion. I'm always looking for good books to give for birth and baptism occasions. Do you know "Whoever You Are?" by Mem Fox? It is wonderful!

Don't know that book, but I love Mem Fox. Will be delving more into the world of children's books as we have a grandaughter on the way in early spring.

OH MY GOSH! Congratulations! I am thrilled - you and S. will make wonderful grandparents. A girl no less - that will be a change for you!
