Two great presents
Present #1 - after the longest, grayest, coldest, nastiest winter and spring I have spent here - it's sunny! And I don't mean sun break - I mean all-day sun. And it is supposed to last through Wednesday, on which day I will be en route to visit my family in sunny (I hope) California.
Yippee!! If you live outside of the Pacific Northwest or Alaska, I suppose this means little...but I am SO much happier when the sun is out. (Don't just take my word for it...the "breaking news" headline in our metro area paper is, "Lots of sunshine in store for today.")
Present #2 - Mr. RK bought me "Bartholomew and the Oobleck" by Dr. Seuss.
Do you remember this book? The illustrations are in black and white, except for the oobleck, of course, which is green.
It is the same Bartholomew from "The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins," I believe.
Who could resist buying a book with the word "oobleck" in the title?
I love kids' books. I have many of them.
Do you have a favorite one that's still on your shelf?
