3 days of Children's Books: Day 2






Oh yes!! Day two of Children's books brings The Red Ripe Strawberry. Do you ever just remember a moment with a scent?? I can actually remember how this book smelled as you pulled each page over the next :) There's something purely magical about that, don't you think?!?





My second pick is The Story about Ping. This book bordered on scary for me as I always became so nervous for little Ping as we neared the end of his tale as I new he'd get his little duck booty smacked for good measure. But beyond that, it has remained a very important childhood book for me :)

I saved my very favorite for last so be sure to check back tomorrow!!

Happy Thursday!!

I remember the story about the mouse...but not the duck. The most important childhood book for me was a book called"No No Joan" because it was the first book I had ever read. I lost it a few years ago, and have been looking for another copy...

What a fun feature idea! And I don't think I've ever seen either of these two books. I'll keep them in mind for any future baby bees!
