Children's Book Monday

In the nature basket...

Anna's Table
by Eve Bunting
illustrated by Taia Morley

{Teaching us how to look on our walks; the nature table lies within reach of the dining table, so while munching on cereal or sandwiches, they can tuck away inspiration with the food.}

In a fireplace book box...

Bad News for Outlaws: The Remarkable Life of Bass Reeves, Deputy U.S. Marshall
by Vaunda Micheaux Nelson
illustrated by R. Gregory Christie

{They shoulder rifles and hats and march through the yard with authority, locking up dastardly chickens and chasing the errant little brother, earmarked for the stockade!)

On Eliana's bedside table...

A Little Princess
by Frances Hodgson Burnett

{We've plowed through Sarah, Plain and Tall and Skylark, and now while I brush her hair and she twirls her toes in the air, we read of Sara Crewe, and learn even more about strength of character and sharing what we have.}

Eve Bunting is such a blessing! Thank you for your reviews. Someday in Heaven you and I will sit under a tree and talk about books :-)
Actually, we'll be so busy praising God we won't even be concerned with books :)

Anna's Table was one we really enjoyed! Thanks for the reminder of it in your post. We always appreciate Children's Book Monday and the many new gems we find that you share. :0)
