Entry # 2 features a book, arguably La Luz's favorite book, easily in her top 5 all time favorites. This is a book that I got at my baby shower before La Luz was even born. My friend, Kim, gave me this one and, since she is a mom, I figured she had a good idea about the kind of books kids enjoy. I had no idea, however, that two and a half years later La Luz would still ask me to read it to her. It is a lift the flap book. Some of the flaps are lost and other flaps are on their second and third round of masking tape. When I got home from work tonight this book was sitting on the table in the front hall. I knew instantly that it was because she wanted me to read it to her again and again and again, and I didn't mind for a second:
The illustrator is Karen Katz. She has a series of books that are all excellent. If you can find a box set it is a worthwhile investment.
