Books...books...books....

Tomorrow morning I am going to try to find the Scholastic wearhouse in Windsor. (I've been told that near Waunakee...thank goodness for GPS!) I just found out about this great sale for educators is being held next week which includes saving between 50%-80% on each and every book. The sweet woman who told me about it said you can get books for $1!!! I'm pretty excited.

In the spirit of being excited to go and look at books...I thought I would share with everyone some of my favorite books.

As a child, one of my all time favorite books was "Three Little Kittens." My Grandma Ohlmann always says that when my parents went to the hospital to Jake and I spent the few days at their house that was the one book they had to read over and over and over again. They really did love me because I can only imagine how annoying that book was after the first 5 times.

One of my all time favorite books in grade school was "No Flying in the House." Miss Greve, now Mrs. Abbott, would read that book aloud and it was always one that I just loved and looked forward too.

I just finished reading the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" series....and I that was a great series, however I think my favorite series is the Janette Oke "Love COmes Softly" series. I know they are a bit cheesy and predicatable, but something about the truthfulness in them just makes me happy.

I did read a great book this summer. "Love Finds You in Valentine, NE." I'm not even kidding it is a book and a great one at that. It was so fun to read a book that takes place in/near Valentine. It was a nice way to think back on Valentine and remember why I love it.

What are your favorite books?

Oh, Jenn, I wish I could go to the book sale with you!

My favorite children's books include "Make Way for Ducklings" by Robert McCloskey and "Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel" by Virginia Lee Burton.

I remember my Kindergarten teacher reading "Corduroy" by Don Freeman. I loved that book!
