I stopped by Once Upon a Huckleberry Bush yesterday, a new bookstore on Main Street. It’s a lovely little store, and… until my children arrived… seemed like a serene and idyllic place to shop. We bought a copy of The Borrowers (thanks for the recommendation, James) for my daughter.
My son insisted on this book, although I’m sure he doesn’t understand a word of it. I think he liked the snuggling picture on the cover. Fortunately, I love the book, so someone wins.
The store also had copies of Canadian Girls Who Rocked the World and Canadian Boys Who Rocked the World, which they graciously had me sign, probably to get my children out of the store faster.
