book discoveries

Here are a few books I discovered recently.
In the Garden with Dr. Carver by Susan Grigsby is a historical fiction picture book about George Washington Carver.  It would be best for older elementary students because of the topic.  When I was done, it made me appreciate Carver's work more than I had previously and made me wonder if there other high quality picture books in this genre.  

Hamsters Holding Hands by Kass Reich is a book I came across at the library.  This board book  is a counting book done in rhyme.  It would make a great gift for a baby shower, or an excellent present for a one or two year old child.

What book discoveries have you made lately?

I discovered that re-reading books after several years is something I should do a bit more often. :) I re-read redeeming love and I loved it all over again.

The hamsters book looks cute. I should have read it when we visited.

I have been working on your winter book challenge--is that what it is called? & have discovered new books that way. I just got Paper Made and am fascinated. I am also rereading one of my favorite books of all time for out Book Group: Soul Survivor, by Philip Yancey. Great!
