Mailbox Monday, May 25th, 2009

Whew! What a week; and so many are books that both my kids and I will love. We've already read a few of them, and we're doing our best to read the other ones too.

THE SLEEPY LITTLE ALPHABET by Judy Sierra and illustrated by Melissa Sweet - We have already read the book many times. It is one of my new favorite picture books.

PRINCESS PIG by Eileen Spinelli and illustrated by Tim Bowers - Booking Son and I have also read this one already. It's very cute too.

ALVIN HO: ALLERGIC TO CAMPING, HIKING, AND OTHER NATURAL DISASTERS (ARC) by Lenore Look and pictures by LeUyem Pham - I think Booking Daughter is going to enjoy this one.

LOST BOY (ARC) by Brent W. Jeffs and Maia Szalavitz - This was from the April batch of Library Thing Early Reviewers.

THE CRYING TREE by Naseem Rakha

SWEEPING UP GLASS by Carolyn Wall - I have already heard wonderful things about this one!

A PASSION DENIED
by Julie Lessman - This one finally showed up! I am so excited since I loved the first two books in the Daughters of Boston series.

REAL LIFE AND LIARS by Kristina Riggle - I won this one!

CHINA: LAND OF DRAGONS AND EMPERORS
by Adeline Yen Mah

FRANKIE THE WALK 'N ROLL DOG

EASY ON THE EYES
(ARC) by Jane Porter - I love Jane Porter's books and am so happy to have an early look at this one.

THE WILDWATER WALKING CLUB
by Claire Cook -- I won this one from Bookin' with Bingo!

TEMPO CHANGE by Barbara Hall

BROCCOLI AND OTHER TALES OF FOOD AND LOVE

It looks like you and your kids had a great week. I'm just a little bit envious of The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie.

Julie you had a great week. I see the only one we have in common is the Crying Tree. I will probably get Lost Boys this week since you got it last week.

Happy Reading.

Wow - what an awesome mailbox you have! I'll bet my son would love that Alphabet book - I'm going to have to see if I can find a copy. He's not quite 2 1/2, and we are really trying to start talking. . .
