fanny's dream




Children's books are definitely a passion of mine. I could lose myself in the kid's book section at the bookstore any time. The stories are always so much fun and always hide a lesson learned in its pages. I'm thinking I will highlight a book from my collection each week. Sound fun? Great. Here is a favorite. (I guess all are going to be classified as a "favorite"). Fanny Agnes (love that name) lives on a farm, is sturdy and has a big dream: she wants to marry a prince. We can all relate to that, right?! Caralyn is the author while her husband Mark Buehner is the illustrator. He is amazing! The illustrations are very detailed and so fun. PLUS they both attended Utah State University which is a bonus.

I love this one, too. It's a children's book that moms can wrap their arms around and feel better, don't you think?
