Der Mai ist gekommen...

...and brings with it blue, blue skies, warm winds and an exuberance of colors and fragrances.

The month of May also contains National Children's Book Week; here are five favorites that will remain part of my family's literature journey FOREVER:

Grandfather Twilight by Barbara Berger (Puffin $6.99)

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Eric Carle (HenryHolt, $7.95 board, $16.99 hardcover)

If You Were My Bunny by Kate McMullan (Cartwheel, $6.99)

D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths (Random House, $29.99 hardcover, $19.99 paperback)

The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson (Egmont, $8.95)

Mesmerizing illustrations, sweet and heart warming story lines will make your and your children's heart happy and light.

AND these books will create unforgettable memories of cozy snuggle times (your teen will cringe now, but it’s all right).
