You know every time I visit Dawn's blog I get so inspired. Her posts are something I look forward to reading often! Tonight I was reading her post about books and I noticed the Ox-Cart Man on the right hand side of her blog. I bought the Ox-Cart Man at a teacher's shop after joining the ladies for tea at the Mad Hatter. Wow, how we have loved this book! It makes you think how little we truly need compared to what our ancestors had. Now Yona regularly asks me if our pillows have feathers in them. He wants to start saving feathers he finds outside to make a pillow.
It doesn't hurt that Barbara Cooney illustrated this book. My all-time favorite "Mommy book" is Ms. Rhumphis by Cooney (my dear MIL bought this for my birthday a few years ago because she knows how much I love books!). Truly it is a gem of a book. I am on a quest to plant a ton of lupines next Spring. Please do share...what's your favorite "Mommy book?"
