Children's Books -- The Perfect Gift

I bought my mother the perfect gift! Thats often a hard thing to do. But this time I KNOW I bought her a gift that will make her cry (in a good way). I found a vintage copy of David Johnson's "I'll Give You The Morning Sun, Although Its Not Mine To Give" which is an out-of-print book of poems written from a parent to a child. Its her all-time favorite book. Someone gave it to her when I was born. She'd sit in the rocker for hours reading it to me.

To top it off, I found a DVD copy of Jack Ezra Keats "The Snowy Day" which is her favorite children's book. The DVD has all the original illustrations with a narrator. PLUS three other stories by JEK and an extensive interview with him. Mother will absolutely flip!


Lucy, that is special and I will have to get it too. Maybe you had no idea but, you inspired me to perhaps look for it too.

Congrats! It feels sooo good to get the perfect gift for someone you love, doesn't it! I'm sure she's going to love it!

My mom, who is dreadfully unsentimental, bought me a copy of Love You Forever a couple of years ago.

It is by far the most treasured gift she's ever given me.
