Kid stuff

I always give my nieces and nephews books and other items from Daedalus to nurture their creativity and love of reading—and it seems to be working! There's a great sale on now of educational toys and books—just go to the banner ad on the home page and start stocking up for birthdays and summer fun. I'm quite taken with New Yorker cartoonist George Booth's illustrations for Starlight Goes to Town, and I think Sophia might soon be the beneficiary!


  1. What a great note to cherish from your niece! I always give books to children, they make the best gifts.

    Silly Sophia! Chairs are for butts, not heads!! ;)

    1. A book. A hammock. A sunny summer day--what can compare? Because she's so cute she gets to hog the best reading spot.

  3. That has to be the cutest thank you card I've ever seen!! Thanks, such a great way to end the week!!

  4. I still have cards my little sisters made for me growing up. Such treasures! And so many great children's books to choose from!

  5. I do too! Back before they make art how they're "supposed" to.
