Book of the day

Puff the Magic Dragon by Peter Yarrow, Lenny Lipton and Eric Puybaret is a new favorite with Fischer. Wanda sent it to him for his birthday in February, and now we read it everyday! The pictures are whimsical and imaginative, really beautiful and different. The words are the song lyrics. Our copy came with a CD of Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul and Mary) singing the song with his daughter, Bethany. Fischer loves to sing about Puff and tonight we listened to that song on his CD 4 times before bed. I'll have to get him to sing it on video so that you all can hear. It is precious. The other day he sang a duet with Grandma Betsy while she played her guitar! Andy said it was so sweet! On Mother's Day Aunt Beth and MamaBetsy sang it while reading the book to him, they have beautiful voices. I hope Fisch got those genes!
