Things lost and found

We went to a birthday party over the weekend and gave two of our favorite books. If you have a young child on your holiday gift list you might want to consider these beautifully drawn charming tales. The first book is Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers. This is about a little penguin that is lost and found by a little boy and their journey to get him back home. Children love stories about being lost and then found, (Disney based their empire off that theme), and this book is so touching and sweet. Oliver Jeffers' paintings are really wonderful too, you can find those here. The second is the classic The Sun Egg by Elsa Beskow. The illustrations and story telling of Elsa Beskow are just so fantastic. In this book we have a little fairy who thinks she has found an egg dropped by the sun. These books really capture our imagination and little g. loves to have them read to her.
