|Dr. Peggy holding surgery with her dogs, cats, and horses...|
and unicorns, and tigers....and other creatures great and small
Peggy has finally decided that it is okay to sit on my lap in the evening. Sometimes she watches a movie on her Kindle while I read on my NOOK. Sometimes we talk. Sometimes stuffed animals act out this and that, and sometimes we just enjoy each other's company.
I would like to add reading to her to this mix, but I don't want it to be the same old-same old. Her mama reads to her a lot in the evening, and she has plenty of books to love.
However, I would like to share the books that delighted me when I was young, some of which are especially timeless and pertinent to us animal loving folks who like to learn.
Thus I renewed a search that has been ongoing for me for several years now. My late grandmother worked in a news shop, which sold magazines as well as books. Christmas was about guaranteed to supply wonderful reading material, from comics to hard covers.
I remember one, a great, big, shiny, hardcover, that had stores and poems about animals. I know I wore it out. I still remember some of the poems.
However until today I have been unable to find it, even by searching for the text of the poems.
Suddenly, while looking at hundreds of covers from the fifties and sixties I remembered the title!
Dogs, Cats, and Horses....... It's a bit pricey for a used kid's book, but still.....
