Interactive, creative, hands-on, and great message. I'm totally buying a copy for my perfectionist child.

Harold at the North Pole by Crockett Johnson

Sometimes holiday spinoffs don't do the originals justice. This is Harold as his delightful self but instead of searching for the moon he's looking for a Christmas tree...and getting lost in the process so he can help Santa and the reindeer get ready ...more

I really like the illustrations of the cute cats. Text is sappy and a little grating.

Global Baby Bedtimes by Global Fund for Children

Will not please those who are devotees of the American Pediatric Association's safe sleep guidelines because a lot of these babies are going to sleep in situations that do not conform to American cultural norms on baby sleep. Which is kind of nice, t ...more

If you were concerned that the American babies in the Global Babies series all looked the same, here's your answer. A diverse crowd of babies from coast-to-coast doing baby things. Cute like the original series and the baby faces will appeal to the a ...more

Cute. I especially like how it ties itself to future builders in the end. Not as much fun as the Baby University science titles, but still well worth the effort.

Quantum Information for Babies by Chris Ferrie

Still a cute series. Definitely not "for babies," as advertised, and boy did I feel dumb when I had to flip back a page because I was missing the point, but to boil down incredibly complex concepts to a text pretty much anyone can understand is a tas ...more

“I never want to forget that if Lewis Carroll had asked me whether or not he should bother writing about a little girl named Alice who fell asleep and dreamed that she had a lot of adventures down a rabbit hole, it would not have sounded awfully tempting to any editor.”
Ursula Nordstrom, Dear Genius: The Letters of Ursula Nordstrom

“Books are not written about proper children. They would be so dull no one would read them.”
L.M. Montgomery, Emily Climbs

Anne Lamott
“...[M]ost of us have figured out that we have to do what's in front of us and keep doing it. We clean up beaches after oil spills. We rebuild whole towns after hurricanes and tornadoes. We return calls and library books. We get people water. Some of us even pray. Every time we choose the good action or response, the decent, the valuable, it builds, incrementally, to renewal, resurrection, the place of newness, freedom, justice. The equation is: life, death, resurrection, hope. The horror is real, and so you make casseroles for your neighbor, organize an overseas clothing drive, and do your laundry. You can also offer to do other people's laundry if they have recently had any random babies or surgeries.
We live stitch by stitch, when we're lucky. If you fixate on the big picture, the whole shebang, the overview, you miss the stitching. And maybe the stitching is crude, or it is unraveling, but if it were precise, we'd pretend that life was just fine and running like a Swiss watch. That's not helpful if on the inside our understanding is that life is more often a cuckoo clock with rusty gears.”
Anne Lamott, Stitches: A Handbook on Meaning, Hope, and Repair
