Box of delights

July 7, 2010

We’re a week into the sleep regression and we’re still waking 3 or 4 times a night to settle or feed G depending on how loudly, and for how long, she is screaming.  I am officially not having a good time.

How about a distraction?  My Amazon package arrived today filled with lots of fun books for me and my Bee, some for reading, and others for sewing.

A couple of books that were favourites when I was a child:

One morning in Maine by Robert McCloskey

Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion & Margaret Bloy Graham

The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge

An excellent guide to feelings and self esteem for kids, again from my childhood.   I still use the phrases ‘warm fuzzies’ and ‘cold pricklies’!

T.A. for Tots: And Other Prinzes by Alvyn M. Freed & JoAnn Dick

And having been inspired by seeing them on Soulemama and Katie Did, a couple of beautiful books of clothing and other goodies to sew.  Now I just need to find a good source for fabric here in Melbourne.

Carefree Clothes for Girls by Junko Okawa

Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones

    i’ll have to check those out. this is a new one someone just gave me and it is a fantastic girl power book, i highly recommend it:
    http://www.amazon.com/Paper-Bag-Princess-Classic-Munsch/dp/0920236162/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1278559777&sr=8-1
