I just had to show everyone my great dollar store score! I was just wandering around on my way to buy some plastic storage containers and to my delight!!!!!!!! I found this wonderful children's book by Giselle Potter. I would have gladly paid the full $17.00 for it since it's absolutely marvelous but who can refuse a buck? They also had a few Maurice Sendak books but I already have them. I have been a fan of Giselle's for some time because I have been collecting Children's Books since the late 80's. I have tons! I have every
Chris Van Allsburg book including my coveted signed copy of 'The Widow's Broom' . My boys are NOT allowed to read these without me present! No sticky fingers or bent pages, thank you very much. But we do enjoy story time with them and I think the boys like the fact that they are the "Special " books that we read together.
So, you have to check out her website at www.gisellepotter.com AND...When I googled her guess what I found? She is also an Etsy seller! Maybe you already know this but I'm so excited.
Ok, I think I'm showing a little too much of my dorkiness here so I'll stop ranting but you have to see this book and the story she tells about herself growing up and traveling to Italy. It's a dream!!
