I love boxes as play things! They open the mind up to such great imagination. Today, this box was an airplane. It crashed several times, but the rug broke the passengers' falls. And Elias, the mechanic, was able to ready the plane for flight once again.
I discovered a fantastic book during my last trip to the library. It was quite by accident. It was a typical library visit ... me juggling Amelia while sorting through the drawers of picture book, all the while keeping an eye on Elias who had gone to check out the children's computers. And then I saw it. "Eight Days Gone," by Linda McReynolds.
