Most Saturday mornings we make a pilgrimage to our local library. It is one of the highlights of my week. I thought I would let you have a peek into my library book bag from Week 11 of 2015. I am reading Stella Gibbon’s dreamy Cinderella like novel- Nightingale Wood. It really is very enjoyable.
‘Little M’ -my three year old daughter is reading Esphyr Slobodkina’s ‘Caps for Sale‘ … well I am reading it to her and she is asking me lots of questions about it. Strange questions that disturb the flow of a really good story but which are of utmost importance to a three year old mind. The book is about a peddler, some monkeys and a handful of different colored caps for sale that get lost and the peddler is able to retrieve in the most unexpected way. This was a recommendation from kind Librarian Lady who gives us nice book recommendations when we visit.
I have a fascination for Paris. I’ve always wanted to visit the city. Rachel Khoo’s book ‘Little Paris Kitchen’ revamps traditional Parisian fare and I get to see luscious pictures of food and Rachel in beautifully styled outfits browsing Parisian markets. This serves to abate my Parisian wanderlust at least temporarily.
Then we have two movies. Little M enjoyed ‘The Aristocats‘ judging by the fact that she did not move from her little sofa during the 79 minutes of playtime. When I asked her for a candid review she said it was good and particularly pointed to the cover picture of the baby cats and said the middle white cat had a pretty pink bow.
Lastly Woody Allen did not disappoint with ‘Magic in the Moonlight’. The movie was pure magic helped by a generous dose of Colin Firth.
