Mailbox Monday (100)

I've officially made it to my 100th Mailbox Monday post! I wasn't sure I would get to it before the baby arrived, but it's managed to stay in so far. Good timing on the baby's part, especially since in its honor this week is full of books for the baby-to-be.
Mailbox Monday
On the Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman
This, like the next two, with both given to me at my work baby shower. Till now, I've never actually read this book, but I know it's a pretty popular. Looking through the book from the story to the illustrations, it's easy to see why.

Disney Bedtime Stories
This one definitely spans the Disney universe, from classic characters with stories on Mickey, Donald, and Winnie the Pooh, to the movies that came out when I was growing up like Aladdin, The Lion King, and Toy Story, to the classic movies with stories from Bambi, Cinderella, and Peter Pan, and even to more recent favorites like Monster Inc, Finding Nemo, and Cars. Maybe not one to read in one sitting, but I'm guessing eventually we'll read through them all.

Noisy Farm
As much as I may want to look down on books like this since they don't really tell a story, I can accept how much fun they are for a tiny person. Especially since not only does this one make noises, but also lets you pet all the animals.

From Goodreads
KeeKee's Big Adventures in Athens, Greece by Shannon Jones
Yes, even my goodreads win this week is a children's book! This is is pretty adorable book about a cat who travels to Greece and visits the sights. Considering Greece is the country on the top of our travel list this is a pretty prefect one for us. There's actually two other books in this series where KeeKee travels to Paris and Rome, and given how cute this one is it may be worth picking the others up as well.

What did you find in your mailbox this week?


  1. I love Nancy Tillman's books. I bought one for my niece for Christmas.

    This week, I bought a Kindle on Black Friday. My nook has been on it's last leg for awhile and the price was good so I decided to buy it. And then I bought the 2nd and 3rd book in Ken Follett's Century Trilogy because they were so inexpensive and they are such huge books, I wanted to read the eBook version. Besides that, I bought the books I will give my nieces and nephews for Christmas. Of the books I bought, the ones I was most excited about are The Hatchet and The Tale of Despereaux!

  2. Oh what a lovely haul of children's books :) The Disney bedtime stories sounds fantastic, I'm a sucker for all things Disney! Happy Reading!!!
