Birthday Books

May is a busy month here in our house. In addition to all the end of school stuff and Mother's Day, we have three birthdays and a wedding anniversary to celebrate. Two of those birthdays, falling 8 days apart, belong to the children. I always like to do a post on the books they are getting for their birthdays. This year is a little bittersweet for me. I'm so excited about the people and readers my children are becoming, at the same time we are well and truly leaving the baby years behind. (Wait until next year when my little one will be preparing for Kindergarten. I may be a puddle.) Here is this  year's lists:

The Boy (turning 4):

Bit (turning 8):

The third birthday in May was my own. I also got a lot of books (thanks to gift cards received). My b'day books:
 Fire and Hemlock by Diana Wynne Jones
Dogsbody by Diana Wynne Jones
A Tale of Time City by Diana Wynne Jones
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
The Shield Ring by Rosemary Sutcliff
Dragon's Castle by Joseph Bruchac
The Swan Kingdom by Zoe Marriott

    1. It's so cute. I think it might be my favorite pigeon book yet. Yes, you need to come over and read it.
