When found out I was pregnant with my first, I was so excited to shop for baby stuff. But not knowing the gender til 20 weeks put a bit of a damper on that …until I realized that I could still buy books! So I soothed my shopping urges at Barnes and Noble. I bought probably $300 worth of books in the first 4 months of that pregnancy! Then when I found it it was a girl, I happily switched to buying cutesy girl clothes.
But I still love to buy books. A perfectly smooth cover, unbroken spine, the excitement of a new plot. Food for little imaginations. I remember my mom saying that books were always a good purchase, and my parents did their best to buy us as many books as we wanted. My collection of 100+ Baby-Sitters Club books is proof! And all of the Little House on the Prairie books. Oh and American Girl books! I try to do the same for my girls. But lets be honest, it doesn’t take much to convince me. My two little girls have quite the library!
I remember this book from Reading Rainbow when I was younger. I loved it. The idea that one day you could wake up and be different was fun to think about. My daughter loves it too.
Ladybug Girl – We love this imaginative little girl named Lulu.
What else should we add to our collection?
