Z's Birthday Books

Z was very lucky to receive some fantastic books from friends and family this year!  He got a nice assortment of fiction and non-fiction and at various reading levels.

The green book is Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes.  Z is not a fan of dust jackets because they slip while he is reading so he takes them off immediately and we have a huge stack of them on top of the bookcase -- but that's a picture for another day!

Thinking bookish gifts are the best ones,
K and Z


  1. That's a great collection! I love that you read with him and he reads so much. It's great that people give him book, too.

  2. Haha, I do the same thing with the dust jackets.

  3. We don't do dust jackets either! I can't bring myself to get rid of them so I have a pile in the basement.

    And yay for Yertle! I loved that book when I was a kid and my son is loving it now! We just read it the other day.

  4. Oooohhh, Z got some great books! Have you read Fantastic Mr. Fox yet?

  5. Paige - He's a rare kid who likes books more than toys so we don't waste money on something he's not going to play with anyway.

    Claudia - Funny!

    Jenners - I can't get rid of them either. And Yertle was one of the few Dr. Seuss books we didn't have yet so we're excited!

    Tif - We haven't but we watched the movie recently which has increased his interest in the book. Hopefully we'll have as much success as we did with The BFG!

  6. I really want to see the movie!! Maybe I will try to get it this weekend for the kids (really, for me too)?!?!

  7. Tif - I would love to hear what you think when you watch it. I've had it on twice but just can't pay attention! I only see bits and pieces of it.

  8. I will definitely keep you posted!! :)
