Tuesday Treasures!

It's possible you've already seen the shelves at Subterranean Books
because i don't get there until Tuesday Morning
BUT, if you haven't been this week
you might want to adventure to the Loop
the shelves are positively packed with treasure.
(this morning those shelves looked to be overflowing with fantastic reads.)

As always, we gathered upstairs on the story time dinosaur quilt
and tried out three great books.
Here's two of them:

if you visit the author/graphic artist's site, you should see a translation link on top of the page,
and, if you are looking for a total cool book for a tiny person, this board book is a winner.
the smallest in the room giggled her way thought this story, and, when it was time to feel the pictures, everyone agreed it was magic.  I had a challenge pronouncing the title, but, every child KNEW some version of the Hippo word . . and helped me . . . excellent board book.

Be A Friend
This is a picture book
I really enjoyed it, and all of us tried a bit of mime 
I'm not going to tell you about it myself,
I'm going to give you the YouTube Trailer:
lots to like about this story

love & love,
your story lady

from Essie:

There's a line from the musical "The Fantastiks"
I have always liked,
"Please Lord, don't let me be normal!"

Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy, Down in My Heart . . . . giggle

Borrowed a photo from my own, really old files . . . 

I have had some really peculiar days lately
have you?
Started sometime last week
and is continuing on even today
everything kinda Topsy-Turvey

One thing for sure
It's lively

Happy Day to You,

Brrrrr . . .

It's colder than normal out
therefore, I'll be extra grateful for a warm up in to the teens.
we are enjoying occasional back yard romps
joy at ice
and special treats saved for inside-ish days like this

Here's a Garden Picture
Soon enough I'll return
love & love,

Subterranean Tuesday

We never know who 
or how many
will arrive for our Tuesday Morning Story Time
we simply choose three fabulous books
and enjoy.
Today was really special
Our books were excellent
So Great, we didn't even need to sing a song
You might need a reading list like this one
we read:

"The New Small Person" - imagine being the super star, household hero,
then someone else comes along and is equally admired . . STILL, This situation turns out great

Then we looked for Little Owl's Mom:
this is a board book we all enjoyed . . . 
(but, next time, please invite the lonely bear to the after party)

we were fascinated by:

This book is full of encouragement and wonder
(high recommend)

I MUST add a bonus today
because a customer came in looking for books by her favorite author
(young adult literature)
and handed me several volumes, while telling me about the stories
the author is Cassandra Clare
she has several series that are enchanting
and a brand new series about to be released.
i wold not have known about this author without this lovely lady sharing with me today.

You meet really great people at Subterranean Books.
