Can you and one other person make that 60 by the Feast of St. Andrew/the First Sunday of Advent? Pretty please?  

Recommendation: It’s ALMOST My Birthday!

This book is ADORABLE!  If you have a preschooler or early reader with a birthday coming up, this is an excellent choice.  The author captures perfectly all the anticipation involved in an upcoming birthday, and as a bonus, she touches on both the whole concept of the passing of time as well as the value of patience.  The illustrations are super charming without being too busy (as a mom to two with visual discrimination/figure-ground problems, I notice this kind of thing). Kudos to author Shelly Emery!
