two of our favorite books arrived in the mail today! the kids are so happy that we finally own them. the Pout-Pout Fish was a book Mary Beth first heard at school and sang a rhyme from it over and over at home when Julia was visiting. so Julia learned it too and they both sang it for days: "i'm a pout pout fish with a pout pout face so i spread the dreary-wearies all over the place. blub blub blub." only Julia(and me and Sarah) was sing germy-wormies instead of dreary-wearies because that's what we all though Mary Beth was saying! turns out she wasn't. the penguin book has great math worked into it and is so funny. Mickey used to take it out of the library all the time- it's one of his all time favs.
