"I will tame the squirrels."
"I will protect the blanket."
"Because there is nothing I will not do to keep this castle safe."

I so love Alison McGhee. And I so loved this book the first time I picked it up. And then we got our own "keeper of the castle" from the pound and I knew I had to get a copy of this book. I just gifted it to my 2 1/2 year old and it went over so well, on the third reading, the seven-year old has laid claim to it as well. Because, as anyone who has a lovable castle-keeping pooch knows, it is so true. I have no doubt that our Clarence is picturing himself dressed in full Musketeer regalia when he is barking the squirrels up a tree and "protecting" us.

Someday has long been my baby shower go-to, one of my absolute favorites of all time, but it admittedly is not as big a hit with the kiddos. Not so with Always. Three readings by mama and two by big brother in one night and lots of giggles can attest to that.
