After seven weeks on the road, we arrived home to Smalltown last night. It's been a great summer, but now it's over and it's time to buy the school supplies. I do like this part of school most of all. Lots of paper, new pens, new to-do lists.

Speaking of lists, Susan at Chicken Spaghetti is putting together a list of best board books for the little ones. There are a lot of horrible board books out there, so I'll be watching this list for gift ideas.

Nicolette Jones reviews a new picture book, Wolves by Emily Gravett, for the London Times as the children's book of the week.
It's not out in the States yet, but as soon as it is, I'll buy this one. My youngest will love it.
