Little Cherub's Book Box

I cleared out the book box today, returned most of Little Cherub's library books and came home with a new batch. For those who enjoy peeking into other's book boxes, here is Little Cherub's current selection:

New Library Books
The Gingerbread Man, illustrated by Elena Temporin
Where Are You Blue Kangaroo, by Emma Chichester Clark
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, by Bill Martin jr and Eric Carle
Elmer, by David McKee
An Acorn for Tea, by Julie Sykes
Walking Through the Jungle, by Debbie Harter (in English and Spanish - no, I'm not trying to teach her Spanish, we just both liked the look of the book)
Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden, by Jane Ray
The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies, by Beatrix Potter
Another Little Book of Farmyard Tales (Cherub insisted on bringing this one home, despite already having all the stories in her twenty book boxed set and picking one of them as her bedtime story every night for the past two or three months)

Other Library Books

Monkey Puzzle, by Julia Donaldson and Axel Sheffler
Go Back to Sleep, by Sylvie Jones
My Very First Bible, illustrated by Diana Mayo (DK)

Own Books
The Owl and the Pussycat, illustrated by Ian Beck (found this one in Oxfam today)
Angelina At the Fair, by Katharine Holabird
Mr Large In Charge by Jill Murphy
The Tale of Tom Kitten by Beatrix Potter
The Tale of Jeremy Fisher by Beatrix Potter

It will be interesting to see how many of these we get through over the next week or so. Some books she will ignore completely, and complain heartily if I have the temerity to pick them out of the box. Others she will latch on to and want read repeatedly.

Thanks. I love looking at book lists. I look forward to seeing which ones Cherub likes.

Oh and I love your new banner picture.
