Since I rarely have anything to post as a "Friday Flashback," I've decided that I want to start something new: "Friday Favorites." I always have something I love that I want to share with others in the hope that it can make their lives easier or more fun, too, but I feel like I'm bombarding my loyal readers (all five of them) with a commercial marathon when I periodically lump them into one giant list of links. So, I'm going to save them for my Friday Favorites, and you can read or ignore as you like.
I think we picked this book up at a yard sale, but it is one of my all-time favorite children's books. The illustrations are beautiful, and the story quite well-told. A fun read for Mom and Dad as well as kids.
