Books


Angela DeMuro sent me a copy of one of her cute books in her Land of Mu series-she wrote them and illustrated them herself and boy, what talent!  This story is about a boy and his friends wishing for snow. (Which we are not, as you know, doing here!)  So cute.  You can purchase her books from her website and here is her blog.



A reader suggested this book for my boys and we picked it up from the library and loved it-it's called Brothers at Bat.  It's about a large family (16 kids!)-the 12 boys formed their own baseball team.  All I thought of the entire time I was reading this book to Patrick was, "Oh that angel of a mother-12 boys!!!"  She was smart no doubt-she sent them outside to play all day long!

  6. Love the books. You always have the best book suggestions. Our favorite is probably Harry the Dirty Dog.
    Went to Angela DeMuro's blog and checked out the books. They are lovely. Will definitely be ordering.

  7. So if someone (an author friend of mine) wanted to send you a signed copy of their book as a thank you to you for recommending it in the past, what address could they send it to? :)
