Books, they help me power through hours, days and months with a toddler. Are you tired of Goodnight Moon and Guess How Much I Love You? Here are some RARE Books We Love:
A Fairy Went A-Marketing. Likely my very favorite book ever. Each time you read this book, you can find something new and beautiful in the illustrations. Only one left on Amazon as I write this! http://www.amazon.com/Fairy-Went–Marketing-Rose-Fyleman/dp/0140547517/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1368205794&sr=8-1&keywords=a+fairy+went+a+marketing
AlphaBears. My favorite from my own childhood. Wonderful rhymes for bears with lovely names and very unique personalities. A great way to learn ABCs. Very rare and was out of print for a long while and now is back! http://www.amazon.com/Alphabears-ABC-Book-Kathleen-Hague/dp/0805016376/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1368205733&sr=8-2&keywords=alphabears
Mama Loves. Tear jerker for me because it seemed to be talking exactly about ME as a mom. All the things this piggy mama loves to do through the seasons with her favorite piglet by her side. Quite truly my very favorite illustrator. Very Rare. Buy up your used ”very good” copies on Amazon. Usually $60 and up for any brand new copies people can find!
Waiting-for-Spring Stories. Nothing but the cutest little stories you have ever read in your life, and all about bunnies.
Out of the Ocean. Many years ago I read this to my first graders and by the end of the story I was crying. Perfect for ages 6-10. Done as a beautiful construction paper landscape collage with photo images of ocean-finds embedded. An excellent art project to do afterward. 5 left in stock as I write this.
Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons. Not rare but newer and amazing. My daughter learned subtraction with this book at 3 years old. Cute little pun at the end!
