For those of you with little boys...

If you have a little boy that loves trucks, trains, boats, planes and every thing in between, you need this book. "Mighty Machines" by Adam Hibbert, Chris Oxlade and James Pickering. It's an absolute steal at under $10 considering it is over 250 pages.


Jack has had this book for a few years and he still could sit for half an hour and be completely entertained. Plus, it is full of information that I never knew. Fastest truck in the world? Hawaiian Fire Department's custom-built truck that goes 400 mph. Wouldn't have known that if it weren't for the book. You never know when you will need to know that kind of information. Like what if you went on Jeopardy?

I just want to know why on earth Hawaii needs a truck that goes that fast? Where are you gonna go on an island that is like 37 miles around? Halfway to Japan?

I'm going to need that book.

The current favorite in our house? The Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs and Ancient Life. It's thrashed, they read it so often.

See you tomorrow!

Oh my goodness, this is one of our favorites! We got it for R two Christmases ago, and it is still a perennial face.
