Books of the Week – Jan. 16, 2010

We’ve become HUGE fans of Daniel Kirk’s books in the past few weeks.  I could go on and on about his books with music, but hopefully they will make it into a post of their own sometime soon.  For now, I’ll share two of his books that we’ve been reading this week.
First, Snow Family:imageThis is such a sweet book!  A group of snow children are running around on their own, getting into trouble and making mischief.  Little Jacob (a real boy) has a very loving mom and dad.  When he meets the snow children and plays with them one afternoon he notices missing carrot noses, lost scarves, and that kind of thing and thinks the snow children need someone to care for them.  After his parents find him hiding in a tree because a sleepy bear was woken by the little snow stinkers (the mother has tears in her eyes as she snuggles him close – I could totally relate), Jacob decides to make snow parents for the little snow children.   What a good reminder that our little ones, even when they are a bit wild, need our comfort and care!

Next, Library Mouse:image
This is a fun book to read and lets children know anyone can be an author.  The little library mouse loves to read and loves to write.  He begins writing books and leaving them on the library shelves for others to read.  When the librarians decide to have a “meet the author” day, the little mouse sets up a box for the children to look in to meet the author.  At the bottom of the box is a mirror. :)  Cute, no?  I really enjoyed this book and so did M!

Have a beautiful day! :)


  1. Thanks for the introduction to Kirk, he's new to us.

  2. I'll have to see if I can find Library Mouse, I'm a sucker for any book that is about mice or libraries, combine the two......

  3. I haven't heard of Kirk either. We will have to check him out.

  4. These sound good. I'm definitely going to look for Library Mouse!

  5. Thanks for joining this week! We read the first one and loved it. In fact, it was the favorite out of all the snowmen books we read this winter. Now I am putting a Library Mouse on my list.
