My Very Favorite Book

A friend and I were visiting an independent bookstore in Grand Haven, Michigan.  As usual, I gravitated to the children’s books.  I snatched one book because the illustrations intrigued me.  Looked inside.  Kept turning pages and…giggling.  It was hilarious.  The language, the witty illustrations. I knew immediately that this book would accompany me home.

What was it?  Frogs and the Ballet by Donald Elliot.

For some inexplicable reason, now out of print.

I have given this book as a wedding gift on more than one occasion.  It speaks to the pas de duex that all couples must navigate.

You see, the best children’s books aren’t just for children…
