Mem Fox: Queen of the Baby Baskets!

Friends recently had twins and I wanted to celebrate their arrival with a basket of baby books. I perused the shelves one evening; the store was closed and I had the luxury of meandering through the baby section, saying hello to some of my old favourites.
I chose, among others, three books by Mem Fox: Ten Little Fingers, Time for Bed, and Where is the Green Sheep. Mem's books for babies and toddlers represent some of the very best in the genre, each one superbly crafted with effervescence and joy, a delight for children and adults, even at the 99th reading! - Nina

Mem Fox joined us at the store for tea while signing books and sharing with us her reading philosophy from her book Reading Magic.
