I just got a box of books from an online order (bookoverstock.com). Most are for the grandbabies (some advance purchases for the as-yet-unborn one and some to bring the 2-y-o when his baby sister is coming so he continues to feel special and important).

One of them, though, is a book about the geographical locations in England where favorite children's stories (such as The Wind in the Willows) are set. It's a touring book for families who are readers! I can't wait to read it.

Well, there are still so few good books for raising strong, confident girls that I grab every one I see and I'll hold them till she's old enough to appreciate them.

And yeah, I looked at a couple of chapters-it's fun and also very good, with a synopsis of the story, a brief biography, a discussion of the featured locale, and list of other suggestions (like local parks or museums connected to the story, or activities for kids in the neighborhood). It goes right through the Harry Potter books.
