Our Book Obsession

We haven't been up to much over the past few weeks.  We are just relaxing and enjoying our last few weeks in Omaha.  Ellie and I have gone to the zoo and children's museum weekly with friends. We are playing outside as much as this cold spring weather will permit.  We are just trying to live it up, spending time with the good friends we will soon be leaving (sob, sob).  

Anyhoo, Ellie and I recenlty got a library card (I took us almost 3 years) we both love to go and pick out new books and dvd's.  We've been going at least once a week.  I'd say we are a little obsessed (:  In the last few months she has really started to love books and I love our reading time together!  I thought I'd share some of Ellie's favorite books (this is for you Collin!)  As a disclosure I love beautiful pictures and books that are fun to read out loud (rhyming).

I Like Myself, by Karen Beaumont
Seriously the cutest book with a great message and fun bright pictures.  She LOVES it!

Sweet story, fun pictures, and lovable character!

  1. Yeah, I love new book ideas. The Gruffalo is my kids absolute fav, I probably have already told you that. I have been slacking lately in the reading department, this make me want to head to the library right now.
