Anyway, I have a single addition to the Bibliophile's list. It's a beautiful, beautiful picture book called I Love My Daddy by Sebastien Braun.
Just look at the gorgeous images! Beautiful color! Each spread depicts a father bear and baby bear spending time together in sweet everyday moments.
I discovered this great-looking book when it was sold at Pottery Barn Kids a couple years ago -- those home decor style-makers picked a winner! Since this purchase I have perused the PBK book selections a few more times -- I didn't find anything that grabbed me as much, but kudos to PBK for making shelf space in its stores for children's books.
Added: When is Father's Day this year, anyway? I went and looked it up -- June 21! Mark your calendars!
(Also, yes, today is Memorial Day! Yes, I have the holidays all mixed-up! We do not have any books about flags, the USA or patriotism! It's a huge deficiency in our collection. And my husband was an Army reserve tank commander. I have one book about Abraham Lincoln, that's it! Any suggestions?)
