New Book Finds

You know - just when I think I've found all the good books - I run across some more good ones!! (That's good, actually, I would just hate to have them all!!!) I had a flyer run across my desk about a week ago that introduced me to Kevin and Robin Books - a publishing company out of Canada which I posted about on my book blog. I just can not tell you how much I LOVE these books - the illustrations are wonderful, the stories are endearing, and I just can't get enough of them!! My first read was Little Joy - the story of an adopted baby girl and the struggle they have to get her to smile!! I am telling you - I was hooked!! Then I read, Are You Thinking What I'm Thinking, which is a fun dialogue between a mother and daughter - again, another wonderful storyline with FABULOUS pictures!! And if that wasn't enough - I read To Share One Moon, a new book about the Moon Festival. (And you know how we are about the Moon Festival over here!!!) That one isn't out until October - it won't make it in time for THIS Moon Festival - but maybe next year I will use it!!! I just had to share this wonderful company with you - I think they are fabulous and I love the Asian flair!!

Yes - So funny - I just found that same book on Chinasprout.com - It is on my "Wish List"!!!!! It is gorgeous!!!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
