on my book shelf - this is london

last time we took a little family trip to the Land of Nod, Nicky spent the entire time looking through the wonderful selection of books they offer while Sasha tried to claim a tool bench as her own. we usually spend a good hour in that store. the kids love it and once they grab on to something, it is nearly impossible to pull them away. i have to admit that i enjoy a Land of Nod trip as much as they do if not more. i get so excited picking up the dolls and looking through the puzzles and the little nicknacks. and i must confess that on a couple occasions, i bought things not because my kids wouldn't leave the store without it, but because i couldn't do so. this last time it was a mutual "i want this now" reaction to these wonderful classic books i am featuring today. i've seen them before but never took the time to actually look inside. most likely because i was probably trying to referee a "this is mine" pulling situation between Sasha and some other little kid. Nicky wanted every one of these books by Miroslav Sasek and i did as well. the wonderful illustrations take you around the world without ever getting on a plane. these books are a wonderful introduction to historic cities around the world like London, Paris, Rome, San Francisco, and New York for your little ones. a must have addition to a every child's bookshelf! i am sure many of you already know about this wonderful collection of books but i had to blog about it nonetheless in hopes of introducing it to some of you who may not.
