1. This is an excellent selection. The crafts looked fun. I echo your recommendation of Ginger Pye and Pinky Pye. My wife and I read these aloud to our kids and I was amazed at how well they held their attention, especially compared the the faster paced, whiz-bang speed of some of the modern books. Perhaps a message is there – that meandering details can add a great touch of reality to storytelling, and when done well, as Estes does, create a vivid environment that sucks kids straight into the story.

  2. We’ve been reading but I haven’t been keeping up with reviewing! Right now my daughter is really enjoying the Elsa Beskow books. I’m sure I’ll mention them sometime soon on my blog.
