I was honored last week to attend the holiday party/December meeting of my local writers’ group, where I was surprised with a basket of books for the Little One. Each member of the group brought a children’s book to share with me, and as the note said, establish the baby’s first library.
I’ll admit that the nursery was looking a bit sparse until then. There’s just something about a basket of books that makes a room feel lived-in and inviting.
A grateful thank-you goes out to all my writer friends. I look forward to instilling a love of reading in a new human being come February.
To end on a humorous note, perhaps the most entertaining book gift this week came from a colleague in response to my comment that the Little One was being especially squirmy at night, awakening me in the wee hours and making for long days. She told me I could start reading it to my belly to see if it puts the Little One to sleep–and she even gave me her own personal copy
