A Gruffalo...why didn't you know?

Its eyes are orange, its tongue is black, it has purple prickles all over its back.  Oh help, oh no!!  It's a Gruffalo!

If you haven't already, you need to read The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson.  Actually, you need to read any and all of her children's books; not only does Parker love them, but they are so much fun to read out loud.  I would recommend Room on the Broom, A Squash and a Squeeze and Tiddler to start.  Better yet?  Every book has a great lesson at the end of the story.  Sadly, I have not been able to find them in bookstores in the US, but you can find them on Amazon.

This week, we were so lucky because Julia Donaldson was doing a book signing at The Book Hive in the city centre.  When I told P that we were going to see the lady who wrote The Gruffalo, he said, "I want to say thank you."  He is obviously a big fan.  We were so excited to meet her!

Standing in line...

P didn't mind...he had cheerios.

This is the best I could do...Parker had just gotten into trouble and was crying when we finally got our turn.

"I so excited," when I let him out of the stroller on the streets after...don't worry, no cars:).
