This week, Faith is feeling more like herself, so we were able to hit the library while Ben was in preschool. Skipping the library for a few weeks meant a plethora of new books that we hadn't seen before, so we brought a home a very big bag.
It was a little difficult to narrow down just a few favorites to post, but these seem to be the top three.
Zarafa: the Giraffe who Walked to the King by Judith St. George - I actually think this was all three of our most favorite book. It's the true story of a giraffe who was presented by the viceroy of Egypt to the king of France, and her journey from Sudan, up the Nile, across the Mediterranean, then up to Paris. The kids loved the map at the beginning and tracing Zarafa's route, plus Faith recognized places she had been before and others that she knew Shaun & I had been years ago.
How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You? by Jane Yolen & Mark Teague - Ben loves all the How Do Dinosaurs books and this one was no exception. I think the slightly naughty dinos in this book might be a bit relatable. ;o)
