October 3rd 2009

Taken from It’s a gray and dreary day here in Wisconsin. It’s perfect for spending the day curled up on the couch with a blanket and some books. Unfortunately, Mom has to go to work later in the day, but it leaves the whole morning for just that! We have been reading today. Do you have any favorite books? My favorite book is Owen, by Kevin Henkes. It is about a small mouse who has a blanket that he carries everywhere called Fuzzy. He is supposed to go to kindergarten soon, and his parents don’t want him to bring Fuzzy. It tells about the different things that his parents do to get Owen to forget Fuzzy and what he does to outwit them. Don’t worry—there is a happy ending!

My favorite bear book is Dan Freeman’s Corduroy. I think more people know about that one. Being the bear of a bookseller, I’ve got a favorite in many different categories! Mom has read us all different kinds of books. My favorite book to read by myself is the Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary. My favorite book to be read is the Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. I like the big words that the author uses, but I can’t always figure out what he’s talking about when I’m reading it all by myself. Since Mom’s more then willing to read it out loud, I’ll leave it up to her!

So, do any of you have a favorite book you’d like to share?


  1. Hi Marlowe! We LOVE Kevin Henkes too!!! We used to read Lily's Purple Plastic Purse to Sarah all the time. What a wonderful story teller!

    Thank you so much for your kind post on our blog. We're glad you enjoyed the visit to Balboa Park with us! :-)

  2. Hello! Thanks for the comment. Wasn't sure about Twitter at first but has been handy for times when naughty Madame is too busy to help me with my blog.

    Excellent choice of books! "Corduroy" and "The Phantom Tollbooth" - good stuff! Tove Jansson's Moomin books have got us through many dark winter days and lazy summer afternoons.
