Tobias and Pera are reading these pretty most often. They tend to get a new one each month they visit the Nordic Heritage Museum.

If you have ever heard him read a story or spin a tail you know this is a total treat. I might get through this February Sweater for me before say, June!

So in the coming weeks, I will finally be updating my sidebar with our book list and making some crafty entries of months past as well. Here are just a few books we are loving right now:
