Both girls managed to be dressed and pack their clothes by dinner time today (with a few contretemps along the way) so they got to chose their stories - both were library books.
Maude The Not-So-Noticeable Shrimpton by Lauren Child
I've liked all the Lauren Child books I've read to the girls but I think this on was written for children a bit older and so it went over the heads of the girls a bit - but that's ok. Callie said she didn't like the Tiger... Rosie said she liked the tiger because she has a tiger toy...
If Beaver had a Fever by Helen Ketteman
Which was ok - a rhyming mother and child conversation book.
Sven's birthday tomorrow - will his present arrive in time - this and other mysteries to be discovered tomorrow...
