Picture books

I've got a stack of picture books and I want to get these off my desk

212. Rapunzel retold by Barbara Rogasky
Got it for the illustrations (lovely) but love it for its a pretty true retelling of the original Grimms. They just added that the prince and Rapunzel were married before she got out of the tower...don't want to be explaining those bastard twins now do we?

213. Thumbelina by Sylvia Long
Never read this one before...wierd story. Nice illustrations though.

214. The Log Cabin Christmas by Ellen Howard
Interesting story...awful for the dialog. I hate reading to my kids things that aren't in proper English...adding an accent doesn't bother me...but bleh.

215.The NIght Before Christmas by Clement Moore
Illustrated by Mary Englebreit...awesome! And it even says "Donder!"

216. The Little Drummer Mouse by Mercer Mayer
Awesome illustrations. Cute story. Will get this one from the library next year.

217. Silver Packages by Cynthia Rylant
Interesting story.

218.The Nutcracker by Susan Jeffers

219. Old Turtle and the Broken Truth by Douglas Wood
Christmas present from allanh  and his lovely husband Randy. A must for the bookshelf for those who want to raise children with religious tolerance.  We love this book. This is actually book 2...I need to get book 1.

End of picture books
220.Making Fairy Tale Scenes by Sybille Adolphi
Another Waldorf crafting book. Lovely! I must make the Mother Holle in it.

221. Magician: Apprentice by Raymond Feist
222. Magician: Master by Raymond Feist
Books 1 and 2 of the Riftwar Saga. We are talking about coming up with a new campaign and this series came up in conversation. I needed some light I grabbed these. Good stuff!

223. Raising Blaze:Bringing up an extraordinary son in an ordinary world by Debra Ginsberg
Seen on the Parenting shelf in the Library amongst the raising boy books. Originally written in 2001. As I was reading I was going "this kid is autistic". And with the re-release this past year she changed the subtitle to "A Mother and Son's Long, Strange Journey into Autism" For was a really good book. It showed me a window of another family affected with autism...and it made me glad Ike was born 16 years after this kid. And it reinforced my opinion of what public school can really do for kids like them...and why I'm keeping Ike out of them. Mostly because I don't think its improved any.

224. There if you need me: a true story by Kate Braestrup
I enjoyed her book on prayer so much I went out and requested her other books. Loved it! Funny, and at some points made me want to cry. And I never, ever want to have to meet her in her professional capacity. At a book signing, yes. At her job. NFW.
