Adèle & Simon

Have you ever had the pleasure of reading this book?

We love this one at our house! It's one of those that we check out again and again from the library. The kids love the story itself, and the perk of being able to find something on every page. I love it for the same reasons, but also because, well- the little boy Simon in this story, who is always distractedly losing his things, rather reminds me of my Isaac. And Adèle? Well, her scolding is just what Ella would do with Isaac.

Imagine how excited we all were when we discovered this at the library last week:

More adventures of Adèle and Simon, but this time, in America. It is also very good. (Although I will say that Adèle is a bit grumpier in the new book.)

Isaac asks me about twice a day if there's another Adèle and Simon book. He thinks Adèle and Simon should travel all over the world. Here's to hoping Barbara McClintock keeps writing and illustrating their adventures!

    Sarah Dawn,
    You're welcome!

  5. Oh, Barbara McCLintock is one of my favorites! I have most of her books on my Shelfari- we love Adele and Simon, and Eliana especially loves "Dahlia". So cute- her artwork makes me smile! (Fantastic Drawings of Danielle, Mary and the Mouse and the Mouse and Mary- more faves!)

  6. I just checked my library and they have it! Thanks for the great recommendation.

  7. I am a book-a-holic and I've never heard of these two. I put it in my library cart. Thanks, Stacy!

  8. Elise,
    Seems I'll be putting a few more books on hold at the library! Thank you! :)

    Heartchild and Joni,
    I hope you like it as much as we do!

  9. I'll have to keep my eyes open for these. They sound delightful.

    love you;
