Boris and the Snoozebox by Leigh Hodgkinson is a cute book about a cat who just wants to take a nap. He crawls into a packing box to snooze, and finds himself transported all over the place to people who want ANYTHING but a cat. This is the "cat book with the butterfly" as mentioned above. This morning alone, I have read it three times. The illustrations are really neat mixed media!
Mabel Dancing by Amy Hest is a beautifully told story about a girl named Mabel who is supposed to be sleeping during her Mama and Papa's dancing party. I love the language in this book, very descriptive. It made me think of the ball in The Sound of Music. E loved that they talked about fancy ball gowns and dancing. She's such a girly-girl!
A Pair of Socks by Stuart J. Murphy was a book I liked more than E. A blue and red sock goes looking about the house for his match. E did like telling me that the socks didn't match, but other than that it didn't really hold her attention.
