Title: Confessions of an Imaginary Friend

Bookseller: Pam


Beautiful writing on imaginary things: "There's no word for secret messages in alphabet soup. Or the first time you put your feet in the grass after a long winter . . . Or for a stranger's note in a used book."  Read it aloud; I hope the children in your life will be transported to the imaginary, and, like the Velveteen Rabbit from long ago, become more real with love.

Title: A Greyhound, a Groundhog

A beautifully illustrated, fun rhyming book for the very young or the young at heart.
I love the pages "around, around, and astound!"
A perfect read-aloud for pre-readers and an easy read for those just learning.
