Sniffles, Sobs, and Books

Everybody was here for Thanksgiving, including Jenny’s beau from far and away. Almost everybody is here the day after Thanksgiving, except Pip and the FYG, who both have to work and then Pip heads north.

There were some tears in the kitchen because Equuschick is moving in a few days. To make us feel better, I set the girls to going through the bookcase of myths and fairy tales and nursery rhymes and told them to take whatever they wanted.

To make up for missing out, Pip gets first dibs on the picture books when we go through those.

The HG took several nursery rhyme books, individual fairy tale books, and a copy of A Child’s Garden of Verses¬†illustrated by Tasha Tudor.

The Equuschick took some other fairy tale collections from Norway, Ireland, and northern climes, and a copy of A Child’s Garden of Verses¬†illustrated by Gyo Fujikawa.

Jenny took the Lang fairy tale books, and a copy of A Child’s Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson and illustrated by Jesse Wilcox Smith.

I detect a theme here. ¬†And I think I may have to buy Pip her own copy of Child’s Garden of Verses.

Updated to note: I’m purging books, both to make room for Christmas stuff, and to just do some downsizing. I’m only halfway through that book-case, and I have found two more copies of A Child’s Garden of Verses.
