Childrens books and rumors!

Apparently several agencies are reporting that referrals will be sent. its hard not to read the rumors but when actual agencies are reporting these things, its hard not believe.

It looks like a few more days were matched this month which is great! I am so not going to report what I read just in case I disappoint someone.

My next obsession: children's books. I can not believe how many there are! My first thought is getting as many Chinese related books as possible. I don't want to do that. I want a variety. Of course I want books that our daughter can relate to and I think thats important; but she is also going to be a young little girl and will probably love all books the same! Cant wait to get the classics!

What are you favorite books? Our first gift was Love you like CrazyCakes and its just precious!!!

Come on referrals!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by my site. I can't wait to read more on your site in regards to your upcoming adoption.
As for kids books, I have so many favourites! Lots of rhymes and big pictures are one of my daughter's favs as well as books with real life animal pictures.

We have Love You Like Crazy Cakes. Our 2 year old loves books with fabrics and textures in them that he can touch. He also likes books that have flaps that open. Goodnight Moon is beautiful. We also laugh a lot of Dr. Seuss's The Foot Book.

"ABC I Love You" by P.K. Hallinan. I have it memorized and "read" it to Natalie all the time...she loves it! Another favorite: "I Know a Rhino" by Charles Fuge.

OK, let me tell you one of my favorites. It's called A Mother For Choco. It's about a little bird who doesn't have a mother. He finds animals that look a little like him and askes if they are his mother. Then a momma bear finds him crying and asks if she could be his mother even though she doesn't look like him. She takes him home to her other children (hippo, alligator...) It's so sweet, and Spicy Girl loves it.

Hopefully, those referrals will

Have a great night guys!

I am children's book junkie. I taught elementary school for years, and I spent half my paycheck on books!

I love all of Kevin Henkes' books. Jan Brett has great stories and beautiful illustrations.

I'm so happy for you!!!!

I hope referrals come soon. Books are so much fun and that will be a wonderful thing to share with your daughter.
