These are a few of my favorite things...Fridays!

So, I've been doing a lot of thinking, and I've decided to start a (semi) regular post on Fridays. About my favorite things. Yes, this is a big shock, after reading the heading of my blog. Surprise!

So, I have many, many favorites. Of everything. Hugs. Hugs are my favorites. And dark chocolate. I have a list of favorite colors. But I want to feature all manner of things. So, to start with, I'm going to feature one of my favorite books when I was young.

Robert the Rose Horse is a masterful tale. The images are detailed line drawings in reds and blues. Get this--Robert, a horse, has allergies to roses! For a girl growing up with allergies, this book totally rocked. I mean, I totally got Robert--and he totally understood me! Even if we probably couldn't go too near to each other. I am allergic to fur, after all.

Totally love-love-love this book. So it, and Robert's journey from country horse to working horse, belongs in my long list of faves. By Joan Heilbroner, and by the way, fantastic for those without allergies, too. :)

So Happy Favorite Things Friday!

Cute! I haven't ever read that one, but I am going to pick it up at the library next time I am there! Maybe the boys will enjoy it! :)

I had never heard of that book! An illustrated by Dr. Seuss no less! Maybe I will go looking for it for my nephew :)

Amy: I think you will love it! I do.

Amalia: I think it's illustrated by P.D. Eastman, actually; he studied under Dr. Seuss, from what I can see. But still exciting!

His website is pretty cool, too. http://www.pdeastmanbooks.com/
