Picture Books With a Side of Peanut Butter
It's been a great day so far! And I think it has something to do with the lovely breakfast I had this morning: PB on homemade banana bread. (What, you had that yesterday? Then, simply flip it over: homemade banana bread on PB!)
Ame! Love your blog!!! And welcome to the blog-o-sphere. Love that your bag went from 19 - 21 lbs! So funny. Who can resist a good book??? Just imagine how much your bag will weigh if you take our Hugo Cabret? (Hey, that rhymed... maybe there's a book in there somewhere...) I'll have to try out some of your recipes. I am also a PB fanatic! I love it on ice cream, too!
Hi, Sheri! (PB on ice cream = fantastic!) Thanks so much for stopping by PB Planet--I hope you'll be a regular PBnaut! I LOVED HUGO Cabret! I have Mr. Selznick's The Houdini Box on my library list, but haven't read it yet--have you? Any of you other PBnauts? And, one more library confession: today, I maxed out my library card (we have a 50-item limit), and had to use MonkeyKid's card for my remaining 3 items! She's charging me--get this!--a penny for each item I put on her card! (I don't know whether to be miffed, or to admire her entrepreneurial spirit!) Have a great day on your planet, and a PB-topped ice cream cone night!
No, I haven't read that yet. I read Hugo with my youngest. She had to read a book whose author she would then write a letter to as a class project. I remember, selfishly, standing in the library saying, if she just read the first 15 pages with me and if she didn't like it, I promised I would let her pick out something else. She was overwhelmed by its thickness. Well, we got to pg 15 that first night and she said, don't stop Mommy, keep reading. We started out just Madison and I. Then the next night were joined by my oldest daughter, Emily. Then my husband. Then our dogs... The whole family read page by page out loud taking turns - well, the dogs just listened. Madison wrote a great letter to Mr. Selznick and she explained just that to him and then asked lots of questions about winning the Caldecott. Well... he wrote back! I don't know who was most excited, Madison or me... Anyway, it was HAND written, nonetheless! A penny a book, aye??? Smart whippersnapper!
A hand-written response letter from Brian Selznick... can I just hold it for a minute? I promise I won't run away! No, I'm not crossing my fingers behind my back! I just, uh, have an itch...
Ha ha! I have it in my drawer of my desk where I write! It's addressed to my daughter... but I have it. I'll let you see it though... IF you join HCCyWIG... (no, I would never use bribery... you know where to find us when you want us...)
(laughing) Sheri, e-mail me the HCCyWIG meeting info when you get a chance? Thanks!
