A Lesson in Pop-Up

Buy this book. Even if you don't have a kid, buy this book.

It's the story of a little girl and a dog "of intractable wrath." She goes about her days and nights haunted by the vicious dog, her heart heavy. Until one day she realizes that some differences are irreconcilable, that not everyone has to like you.
I need to read this book every morning, and then again each night.
Plus, it's a pop-up book.
That is all I have for today.

Go here to check out more artwork by Seonna Hong.

Oh yes. I especially need to read that.
Miss you (and glad we have long time coming plans)!

A very good daily lesson. Thanks.

This book seems kind of too sad for a child. But maybe that's just me? But it sounds like a good lesson for all of us adults to learn. :)

I actually sort of paraphrase it for Zoey. Even two year olds know what it's like to be sad :( So I like to teach her that it's okay sometimes, that the beauty of the world is made up of all our emotions (which is kinda' how the book ends, not to spoil it or anything).
