The Big Book of Berenstain Bears Beginner Books

The Big Book of Berenstain Bears Beginner Books (wow that's a lot of alliteration!)  contains the stories Bears in the Night, The Bears' Picnic, The Bears' Vacation, The Spooky Old Tree, The Bike Lesson, and The Missing Dinosaur Bone.  I always have my eye out for these at used book sales but so far have only been able to scoop up Bears in the Night.  So I caved in and bought this anthology of early Berenstain Bears stories at Chapters.  I would prefer to buy these books in their vintage form but this is the next best thing - at least we have them now.  I like anthologies for their usefulness but I prefer to have the books separately to be able to enjoy their covers.Speaking of The Bike Lesson - we really need to buckle down and teach our 7 year old to ride without the training wheels this year.  Anyone have any great tips for what worked well for you?  We did a few sessions last summer but didn't get Keira fully ready to ride a 2-wheeler yet.

Richard Scarry- I am a Bunny and The Bunny Book

Happy Easter!  2 adorable bunny books illustrated by Richard Scarry here today.  I love the Golden Sturdy book I Am a Bunny- the pictures are so vibrant and fun.  And I love the story of The Bunny Book - so sweet.

Gyo Fujikawa's Mother Goose

I thought it was time that I do another post about my favourite children's illustrator, Gyo Fujikawa.  Here is her adorable collection of Mother Goose.  Just wanted to say thank you to those of you who sometimes comment on my posts.  Sorry to my bloggy friends that I haven't been commenting as much lately - harder to find time since the baby was born.  And thank you as well to those of you who are reading although not commenting - I appreciate you stopping by!
