Cool Book of the Week: Sometimes I am so tremendously sad that Julia is pretty much past the picturebook age. I've been hankering after 'Red Knit Cap Girl' by Naoko Stoop for a long time, and I recently passed the newest book in the series, 'Red Knit Cap Girl and the Reading Tree'. So precious! The gist is that a little girl discovers a hollow tree and she and her forest friends puzzle over what to put inside it. The girl decides she will store her books inside, while her friends bring more books, as well as other items like blankets - and one enterprising fellow creates a wee bookshelf. By the end of the story, the Red Knit Cap Girl realizes that they've created a little library and explains what that is to her animal friends. DARLING.
