In my Mailbox Monday originates from two blogs: The Printed Pageand The Story Siren. I am using it to highlight any books that come into my house the previous week, whether they are from the library, from a store, from a friend or actually in the mailbox.

Choices by Pamela Nowak
and Love is a Four-legged Word by Kandy Shepherd.
Also, we made a trip to the library this week, coming home with 8 picture books, an Elmo CD, a Veggie Tale movie, and 2 books for me.

I started reading it to my daughter, but I think she is a little young.
Also, I got out The Secret by Beverly Lewis, (which will be reviewed this week).
