When a bookworm moves...and I‘ve already moved over one bookcase with two still to unload
Two books from school library where I volunteer. One mentioned this author. I‘d never heard of her so found this book which is first of a small series. Printed 2003. This book is just delightful and so well written. I loved it.
Hippy type family are central characters. A few “ issues” are tackled in such an eloquent way. I admire the way she did this. A quick adult read. Might need a tissue. @MrsMalaprop
So my book organization project with my 8 year old did not go as well as I‘d hoped. She wanted to hang on to EV.ER.Y.THING.
The big box is stuff she agreed to put into storage, so some progress was made there. The other small pile is what she agreed to donate. 🤦🏻♀️. Her shelves are still overflowing and there are two bins under her bed. More shelves it is, then. 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️
Since I‘m already playing challenge catch-up, I thought I‘d kill 2 prompts with 1 post of The Midwife of Hope #River, a book with plenty of #babies being birthed. I‘m a sucker for a book about a midwife and enjoyed this 2015 read set in Depression-era Appalachia.
Two very emotionally charged books about #Babies... A Spark of Light is my least favorite Jodi book. I think because of the way it was told backwards. Both deal with very powerful and controversial issues as always with Jodi‘s books!
The picture is the dressing gown that my mother and then my oldest daughter wore home from the hospital.. So that makes it 66 years old... 👶🏻 🍼
“Because whatever the song was really about, I had my own version. You see, I imagined it was about this woman who‘d been told she couldn‘t have babies. But then she‘d had one, and she was so pleased, and she was holding it ever so tightly to her breast, really afraid something might separate them, and she‘s going baby, baby, never let me go.”

#bbrc #a2z A mother stitches a story of home into a quilt for her baby. With delicate, realistic illustrations, this one will probably appeal more to the parents than to the kids. Not that there's anything wrong with that; I happen to enjoy welling up over a sweet picture book. Would make a nice shower gift, I think.
