Alison Cummins

The Dao is just so cute! It's so cool that he's reading by himself, too. That means he really gets books. Already! Yaay for both of you.



You pulled the (almost) naked baby on us.


Aha, you need a singletree harness for the dog! I know such a thing must be made; surely we can harness the power of the Internet to do a search...
(Seriously, though, you need a smaller version of an equine harness: the singletree pivots so the back-&-forth movement of the beast of burden's shoulders are transmitted back through the harness as a continuous "pull" instead of a jerky series of tugs)


Yay for Peggy Rathman! Be sure to get her "10 minutes till bedtime" - also with minimal text - & for when Dao's older, "Officer Buckle and Gloria" which he'll love because Gloria's a police dog with some PRETTY NEAT tricks up her paw....

Books for Clutterchild

  • Andrea U'Ren: Pugdog

    Andrea U'Ren: Pugdog
    Pugdog just wants to be a dog, not a GIRL dog. Adorable illustrations, but a bit of overkill with the poodle ending. (****)

  • Rigoberto Gonzalez: Antonio's Card
    Antonio is nervous to show his mother's card with his two moms after the kids laugh at the butch one outside school one day. Nice to see a butch mom. Extra points for being bilingual English/Spanish. (****)
  • Peter Parnell: And Tango Makes Three

    Peter Parnell: And Tango Makes Three
    Another beautifully illustrated book about gay fathers, in this case, two male penguins in the zoo, who raise Tango, their baby from egg. My only problem, "it takes 2 to make a Tango". drat from the single mom point of view. (*****)

  • Latifa Alaoui: Marius
    Wonderful french canadian book about Marius, whose parents are divorced, and his mom has a boyfriend, and his father does too. Beautifully illustrated by Stephane Poulin (*****)
