Ada 's bookshelf: read

The Oldest Living Things in the World
4 of 5 stars
I ordered this from the library just to look at the pictures, but also enjoyed many of the essays as well. Beautiful images of our wonderful planet.

The Lion and the Bird
4 of 5 stars
Sweet story of a winter spent together: lion and bird. The artwork is lovely, the story minimally written allowing toddlers to "read" the wordless pages, explaining the action of the story to their grownup.
