Those are pretty much my favorite things about vacation. And I'm going on vacation. Tomorrow. To Maine. Then Boston. I will tell you about what I eat, see and read when I get back, I promise.
But until then, I have something for you. Well, one of you.
"Bear's Loose Tooth" is Karma Wilson's newest installment of the adorable, rhythmic Bear books. My dear friend Sarah introduced me to Bear and his friends. Cate -- my 4-year-old who loves books -- is loving Bear these days.
So you can imagine I was excited when I saw on Facebook that Karma Wilson offered to giveaway "Bear's Loose Tooth" to interested bloggers. She included a signed paperback copy for Cate and a hardback copy for one of you.
My favorite lines I've read in any of Karma's books comes from "Bear Feels Scared" ...
With a flap and a flurry
all the friends gather near.
They give him bear hugs--
and they calm his bear fears.
And then there's these sweet words from "Bear Feels Sick" ...
Mouse squeezes Bear tight.
He whispers in his ear,
"It'll be just fine.
Your friends are all here."
