I went to a bookstore yesterday to buy a couple books for a baby that will soon be born. However, the books I wanted were not available. The books, But Not the Hippopotamus and The Piggy in the Puddle, are two of my absolute favorites for little ones! But they are so difficult to find anymore. So, I am thankful that the store had two others that I just love, Miss Rumphius ("You must make the world a more beautiful place.") and Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb ("Dum ditty, dum ditty, dum, dum, dum.") I still have that last one memorized! And I am thankful for the couple who is excitedly awaiting the birth of this baby.
