  1. I love the variety of books you are reading! I enjoyed Primates (of course, I was already a fan of these three women). I've been wanting to read The Noisy Paintbox, too.

  2. wow, you've been reading a lot and a lot of different kinds of books. I want to read Girls Like Us and Fly Away.

  3. Wow, look at these picture books! So great. Well on your way to meeting your reading goal if you keep up such a varied reading diet :-) I found Extraordnary Jane to be such a lovely book.
