It has been months since I have bought a picture book for myself (I think the last one I bought was this amazing version of There was an Old Lady by Jeremy Holmes) but last night I bought myself TWO! and the cashier at Borders totally made some joke about me buying them for myself which got me all flustered because I was buying them for myself… Anyway so I bought myself a copy of Miss Brooks Loves Books (And I Don’t) by Barbara Bottner and Michael Emberley because that book is crazy adorable and I’m a wannabe Children’s Librarian–I totally envy Miss Brook’s and all the kids’ literary costumes! and best line: “When I get home, I ask my mother if we can move to a new town. My mothers says there is a librarian in every town.”
AND I ALSO BOUGHT MYSELF SHARK VS. TRAIN BY CHRIS BARTON AND TOM LICHTENHELD BECAUSE IT IS THE AWESOMEST BOOK EVERRRR! because seriously, I think we have all asked our selves at one time or another: Who would win in this situation??? the shark?? or the train???? My money is on a Giant Sloth.
I think I will make my own Amber vs. Steve book…I would totally win if it was a dance contest, a math bee, or recognizing young Disney Channel stars… Wouldn’t that be a cute little Wedding Zine?! But seriously I probably won’t do it so I hope somebody else reads this and makes one for their wedding…
