I'm a day late, but the stomach flu is not conducive to heavy blogging (or anything for that matter.) Since I'm late making my list, I got the chance to read a few that other people posted. This week, Top Ten Tuesday's calls for a list of books for book haters. What would you throw at someone who claims to not like reading?

Ok, so maybe I'm going a little challenge crazy, but I couldn't resist this one: The Read to Me Picture Book Challenge.. It's basically a no brainer given that around 7:00pm every night I'll have little man chasing me around while carrying two or three books he has to read with mom before bedtime. We're aiming high and hope to reach the "growing" level (120 picture books with child during the year). I'm really excited to get some new ideas for books we can be reading together. Here are my first few reviews from the new books we read in January.

I've been on this quest to expand my son's book collection. I've found a few really awesome sights to buy used children's books for great prices (and the proceeds generally go to good causes). My latest purchase was what I thought was the John Prater Children's Classic.
Much to my surprise, I ended up with the story of a bear who found a briefcase under a tree and decided to throw himself into the financial world of the early 90s.
Needless to say, I don't think my 19 month old will enjoy it that much. I'll probably keep it around in case I need to change things up. Who knows, Kotwinkle may be my next favorite author.
