Several weeks ago I left a comment on a blog I've followed for a long time: My Little Corner of the World. Mari had been asked to review a children's book.
I was incredulous when as a consequence of leaving the comment on that particular post, I won a copy of the book.
I don't normally win stuff. It's not that I'm unlucky; I'm just relatively uneventful.
Anyway. The title of the book is Would a Worm Go on a Walk?
Naturally I was excited, since I have Dagny to read to, although at age two and generally so active she'd make a worm in hot ashes appear stationary, she isn't exactly capable of sitting through a whole story.
Peppa Pig videos keep her glued to the spot; books, not so much. Yet.
Next week Allissa will be visiting and I'm pretty sure her compelling storytelling skills will hold Dagny longer than mine ever could.
But Dagny loves to climb the stairs to the landing where the book is on display in a bookcase. We take the dust jacket off so she won't tear it, and she lugs the book around.
The message of the story is sweet, all the more so because it glorifies God our Creator. The illustrations are darling and inspire Dagny to babble happily as she turns the pages.
I was glad to learn that the author, Hannah Hall, has written several books. I plan to buy more of her titles for my grandchildren.
Meanwhile, thanks again, Miss Mari. From Dagny and from me too.
And that is all for now.
