Anne Lamott: Traveling Mercies : Some Thoughts on Faith

Kerry M. Olitzky: Jewish Ritual: A Brief Introduction For Christians

Don Freeman: Corduroy (Picture Puffins)

JEAN DE BRUNHOFF: The Story of Babar (Babar Books (Random House))
The Babar books were some of my favorite as a child, and I'm pleased that the Shookie has also taken an interest in them as well. (****)
