Why am I buying children's books?



I guess this is the result of working at an elementary school all day with primary kids, and having a book fair at the school! 


Fancy Nancy though, is an amazing books series, all about this little girl, who always wants to be fancy and use fancy words! Bjørn actually bought me the first book as an audible book online. For any mothers with young girls, read her these books! I just bought Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy today. 



The other book I bought today is called, Jazz on a Saturday Night. I 
didn't know they wrote good children's books about Jazz music. This book has an introduction about the history of jazz, and mentions the classics: Miles Davis, Max Roach, Charlie Parker, Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Stanley Clarke and of course Ella Fitzgerald. The book even comes with a cd with the song: Jazz on a Saturday Night.

Oh goodness, I forgot how much I LOVE book fairs. I also still love children's books, but especially children's literature, as you well know. Thanks for reminding me.
