Our Favorite.Book.EVER. is "On the Night you were born" by Nancy Tillman.
It's so sweet ... if you've never read it - you must go buy it or check it out ASAP! 

Our Favorite author is Sandra Boynton.

She writes the ...

and a million other great books!

Then I recently hit up a Retired Teacher's Garage Sale
and found an amazing set of 10 VINTAGE books for .25 each! :) Score!!
We love them! :) They are adorable.
I'm actually considering framing some pictures from one for the play room!)

and this is a newbie that we are adding to the colletion -
"The Christmas Tree Fort".

This book was written & illustrated by one of my best friend's parents
and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy!! It looks wonderful! ;)
Check out the synopsis here. It can be ordered from the website, at Amazon & Barnes & Noble.  
It's definitely going to become one of our Christmas favorites!
