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.

I am sure many of you have seen this already but for those who haven't - it is SO worth watching. We have always enjoyed Steven Curtis Chapman's music and his commitment to adoption. AND we are even more grateful for this through this second adoption as they are giving us a wonderful grant to help us out. So when the tragic accident happened to them - we almost felt it was a part of us. Their story is powerful - I admire their strength.

My poor husband must have felt REALLY bad for being gone for two weeks. BECAUSE he planned a date night for us - ok, that's not so uncommon for him BUT look at what he planned.
First we went to see THIS! NOT his choice at all - but I am kind of pumped about anything ABBA (and Pierce - which goes back to THIS!!!) so he humored me. (and he even admitted that it would never be his pick, but he did like it! What a guy!)
THEN - poor guy, he humbled himself, yet again and showed up at Barnes and Noble for me to be in on the midnight release of this new book! Yes, I was one of the only adults in line at midnight to get THIS!!! But I didn't care - I considered it "for the job" - what we don't do as librarians!! I stood in line with teenage girls dressed in prom and wedding dresses and screamed every five minutes until midnight! (Joe hid by the magazines - what a guy - AGAIN!!!) And then I read all the way home!! But don't feel too sorry for him - he listened to THIS all the way home - and I consider that torture!!! Ahhh - marital bliss! So that's all the post for today - must go read some more!!
