Book Notes

Some of our recent favorites - (Just a heads up - If you click on our links to purchase them, a portion goes to our adoption fund.)

Minji's Salon is a wonderful book about a little girl that wants to be like her mommy. SO, when mommy goes to the salon to get her hair colored, Minji decides to do the same to the dog!! It is such a cute story AND I love it that the little girl is Korean - I love books with that "asian" flair! Eun-hee Choung is a magnificent author AND illustrator!

Another of our favorites I posted about on my book blog - go check it out if you haven't read it. AND make sure to read the comments - the illustrator AND author commented!!

This book, Made in China, is another wonderful book for adoptive families. Read my post about it on my book blog HERE.

And lastly, IT's finally for sale - the Ni Hao Kai-Lan DVD - of course we are SO excited over here since we don't have cable and haven't been able to watch it yet!!!!
So that's it - just a few fun books on our radar.

Well, Lily has quite the Christmas list going now! I MUST have "Made In China" and now I want the Korean one for baby number 2.
Thanks for the wonderful suggestions, my friend!

Thanks for the ideas again. My oldest was running late for school 2 days ago. His hair was sticking up in back and he had a less than chipper look on his face. Miss Anna pipes in....."Wesley looks just like grumpy bird Mommy"! To which we all laughed (including Wesely) as they have read the book as well!

I love these book ideas! I have zero books for our future daughter. This could be jsut the retail therapy I need while waiting, as we have no clue what season it'll be so clothes are out. PJ's are the best I can do! But books--that'll make be feel smart! :-)

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.
