This is a wonderful book for children and gives eveyone an uplifting feelling in the whole family. It has beautiful artwork and a great storyline for children to appreciate. Charlie is adorable. Charlile Girl instills a sense of attachment to the reader and is fun to follow as she travels throughout Manhattan. Elizabeht Frogel has done a fabulous job in giving my children the feeling of attachment to Charliie and her love for life.

I selected this book for the birthday of a 2 year old. She is adopted and so happy with her adoptive parents, and they are happy beyond words to have her. Upon deciding on a selection by reading the description of the book, I got a visual image of this little girl and her adoptive parents all cuddled up at bedtime, reading this book, their love and gratitude permeating them with supreme nourishment. Sure enough, they are very happy with this book...it is a forever expression of the love and protection and joy of the family unit. Another parent and her 2 year old, non-adoptive family, also at the birthday party, saw this book and told us that she and her husband have the same book for/with their child, and they love it...as does their 2 year old when they read it to her. This book is appropriate whether the child is adopted or not, raised by parents, grandparents, or whomever provides the parenting and love.

This is a wonderful bedtime book. It's perfect to give to a child who is having a new baby come into their family soon. It reinforces the excitement that the older child brought to the family when they were born and eases any feelings of jealousy toward the new little one.

I bought two of these Indestructibles for my 6 month old son and I am so glad that I did. The pages are thin like paper but constructed from tyvek meaning that he cannot tear them and they do not dissolve with slober (this is a biggie since my kiddo puts EVERYTHING in his mouth and the regular board books never look the same). They can be washed, chewed on, crumpled, and 'read' and they last through it all! Flutter! Fly! is just another fantastic story in the set. Though it does not contain words, it has pictures of all sorts of creatures that take to the sky, from a fly to an owl, and each creature has large and inviting eyes (b/c that's what babies focus on first, eyes). I have recommended this line of books to everyone I know, and anyone that shares with me that they have a baby in their family. I cannot wait for the new books to come out in this line as they are based on nursery rhymes and they are multicultural! I will definitely be buying more of these for my son and my neices!! I hope that your child enjoys them too! AND with overstock.com $2.95 shipping, you cannot go wrong!

Bad Kitty gets lost and finds a lonely older woman on Christmas Eve. The book is in alphabet format and stresses the importance of family and being together on Christmas.

This book is a great collection of circle stories which entertain kids for hours. The additional activities, recipes, and songs also add to the fun and enjoyment the whole family can have together. It's even perfect for little ones who don't have reading skills yet to be able to listen to the CD and follow along. The stories are silly, uplifting, funny, and just plain fun. Even adults can get into the fun of it all. I bought a copy for myself after experiencing it in a classroom at school...I just had to have it!

This very sturdy board book has become a family favorite. My daughter in England requested that I get one for her baby. My old copy has held up with 6 grandkids. They never get tired of it.

This book is great for babies and toddlers alike learning to speak! The illustrations are simple, in which I mean easy shapes to focus on and the words can be easily animated when read for children to mimic and be entertained. Great time spent with my now 16 year old and 10 year old and recently my 1 year niece. The book itself is a heavy board book so no ripping of pages and weathers teething and other toddler demolition quite well! Small enough to throw into a daiper bag and go and heavy glossy pages are easy to disenfect with a damp wipey.

This book was THE HIT of a large family Christmas. Purchased for my infant cousin yet, read by every member of the family as it speaks to young and old alike. This book just makes you feel special...and if you are a parent...makes you cry...in a good way. Outstanding baby gift!

My kids loved it, too. A truly wonderful story, demonstrating that love is beautiful, no matter where you find it. It was well written, and the illustrations were absolutely adorable. I can tell that it will become one of my family's regulars.

It is a good way to teach children about money. The pictures are clear and fun. The story is simple. There is a problem and the bears solve it as a family.

This is a beautifully illustrated book. I remember the song so vividly, and to have it in a book and illustrated is the equivalent of my memory translated MORE than accurately on paper! Bought this for an Xmas present for a child family member, and I know he and his mom will adore the reading and sing along experience.

My sister & I grew up with this story and we absolutely loved it! We read it so many times that to this day, I can still recite it with or without the book! It is such a clean, good-humored book that is a must-read for any kid... or adult!! :) I just bought one for my sister who is now pregnant with a girl of her own. We are thrilled to make this story book a tradition in our family! It is SUCH a treat!! Enjoy!!!

This was a Christmas gift for my 7 year old niece and 4 year old nephew, for Christmas. The book was a hit, and my nephew would make the family read the book over and over again.

This book is so fun to read out loud. All 3 of my kids love it, ages 6, 4, and 2. We love the original but definitely enjoy all of Skippy's adventures. This book should be in every family's collection!

This story was originally titled "Little Black Sambo". I read this book when I was a child and read it to my children as well. After nearly 50 years of reading, the cover and pages fell apart. My son requested this book along with other Little Golden Books as a birthday gift for his twin sons. I could not find the original title in print any longer, but The Boy and the Tigers is the same story; however the name of the boy has been changed. I'm sure there was some political-correctness involved in the changes, but it is sad that a childhood favorite and a family tradition has been changed because there is that disconnect now. My children were always anxious to get to the part of the story where the greedy tigers are chasing each other around the tree so fast that they spun themselves into butter, which "Little Black Sambo's" mother used to make all those pancakes. It is a fun story that teaches a good moral...that there are consequences for being rude and greedy. Even though the story has been renamed, I would highly recommend it. It is just sad to know that the original story has been lost. I would be thrilled if it made a come-back!

This is such a cute book. The artwork is beautiful - Garth Williams is the guy who did the Little House series, among others and his illustrations are just timeless. I read the first page in the library and could tell I would buy it - it reads like a poem.

I bought this book for a Christmas gift for my 10 year old neice who loves horses. She opened it our family Christmas party and would not put it down. Being a previous horse owner and rider, it had very appropriate care instructions for horse and tack.
The time spent with your family is often the most rewarding time of the day. Make the most of the time you spend with your spouse and kids by having fun together. This doesn't mean you have to splurge on amusement parks and pizza nights. Instead, try having a little fun right in your own backyard.

Your pet's cage is typically the first pet supply you'll buy, so you want to make sure it's right for your pet.

To most pet owners, pets are part of the family. They return all the love and friendship they are given and then some. These furry family members need the same care and attention as every other member of the family. You bundle up your kids to go outside in the winter and make sure they're warm and dry when they come back in. Your pets need similar care, and more, when the temperatures drop outside during the winter months.
Did you know that cats sleep an average of 16 hours a day and dogs are close behind! This makes choosing the right pet bed for your furry friend extremely important.

Here is how to find the right one for Fluffy or Fido.

Don't forget about your pets when you're celebrating the holidays. They deserve just as much love and attention as the rest of your family and friends do.

Show your pets how much you love them by treating them to some great pet supplies and some extra attention.
Newborn gifts range from the useful and practical to the whimsical and luxurious. When selecting a baby gift for a newborn, you may be wondering how to choose something unique that won't be like all the other presents at a baby shower. To find the best newborn baby gift, consider what you know about the baby and the lifestyle of the parents and consider gifts that the parents truly want. Toys. Baby toys always make good gifts for newborns. Even if the toys won't be played with right away, parents can use them to provide stimulatory experiences and items such as rattles, stuffed animals, soft blocks and musical mobiles all provide the developing baby with learning opportunities. Books. Children can never have too many books. Reading to and with a little one can help them develop language skills and imaginative qualities. Many parents start reading to baby from day one and find that it is a valuable bonding experience. Any baby book with a simple, clean layout, contrasting visuals and short, straightforward text makes a good choice. Look for touch-and-feel books, pop-up books and books with mirrors, which are all fun for babies. Blankets. Keep baby warm and comfortable with a soft blanket. A luxury blanket made of cashmere or silk can be a nice change from other gifts and will probably become a family treasure. Blankets that have been embroidered with the baby's name or initials are also a unique newborn baby gift. Baby blankets that have been folded into the shape of a cake or other decorative item are fun to give on their own or as part of a gift basket. Larger items. Many parents find that they simply can't afford to purchase all of the baby gear that they really want. If you are looking for a newborn baby gift that will impress, then you might consider purchasing a larger item, such as a swing, a rocking chair or a video baby monitor. Surprise the mom-to-be in your group of friends with something she has been wanting by gifting something expensive with several other people.
