Bookstore Find

We continued our traditional New Year's Eve trip to the bookstore although we only came back with one calendar this time instead of one for everybody which is a good thing. Shortcake picked up a few more dog themed easy readers, Sunshine grabbed two American Girl Mysteries and The Professor chose some classics.

Of course, I had to peruse the Christmas book table (50% off!) and I have to tell you about the sweetest little book I found there. Christmas Cookies: Bite-Size Holiday Lessons is a darling little book written by Amy Krause Rosenthal and illustrated by Jane Dyer. This book is like a little dictionary of values and lessons demonstrated in the course of making Christmas cookies.

CHARITABLE means setting a big batch aside to give to people who maybe don't have any cookies at all....FRUSTRATED means, I can't believe we burned them again!

My favorite...
PEACE means no one is worried about anyone else's cookie... in this moment we are all quietly content with the cookies we have.
A simple little book with charming illustrations that I just had to share with you all. Happy Holy Day to you all and blessings for a beautiful New Year!


  1. Happy Feast Day, and a New Year, Charlotte.

  2. How very sweet!! A Blessed and Happy New Year to you, dear Charlotte!

  3. I LOVE Jane Dyers illustrations... we had a book of hers called "Animal Crackers" that was literally loved to shreds.

    A great tradition for the feast day!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
