  1. The book pillows look kinda cute, you could list them as a baby gift--perfectly safe to gnaw on!
    And do you like the Jesus Storybook Bible? Have you looked at it in hand or just on-line? It seems to be really popular, we know several people who like it. (We have, by now, received 3 different copies.) The final jury is still out, but so far, we can't say we see why it is so popular.
    Oh, but I saw a set of really cute books for girls! :D I would have Loved them, I'm sure! Saw them at Costco, they are a set of books about a little ballarina who is transported into the stories of Swan Lake, the Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty...and Cindarella, I think? via their music. Their cute!

    1. I have flipped through the Jesus Storybook Bible and thought it was pretty good. A number of families I know really enjoy it and that's actually what our director is using during elementary chapel I believe.
      Oh, those do sound like cute books! You should have gotten them and tucked them away for a few years. :-)

    2. It is the gift that our Church gives families when the dedicate their baby, too. Like I said, really popular. I think there are others out there that would be better for an elementary chapel.
      I just saw a link on "Redeemed Reader" for a book called "A Light for my Path: an ABC Book Based on Psalm 119." That one looks really cute.
