Fun fact: the months between the end of student teaching & starting the school year I worked at Barnes & Noble. I learned a lot of things about book stores (including how messy & rude people are when it comes to book reshelving!) but spent a lot of lonely nights in the kids’ section. That was the least fun shift because if you have kids you’re huddled up at home in the evenings, not out buying books. I spent a lot of time flipping through picture books & making a mental list of all the ones I’d buy for my future children. Between those hours in Barnes & Noble & all the books we’ve gotten for Adelyn in the past 18 months I have quite the collection to share with you, including the ones that make Adelyn’s list!
