Oh how happy i am to see this post!
I Took The Moon For A Walk is one of our favorite books, as well as Listen,Listen by the same artist.
We don't have a television at home so we read non stop, bedtime is actually looked forward to by my son because he gets to pick 3 books at nite.

I actually am an independent seller for the company that carries the featured title. We carry a ton of childrens books loaded with art that is equally appealing to kids and adults.
Indie Barefoot Books is worth checking out if you would like childrens books that are focused on art, health, culture and diversty. Soy/vegetable based inks and ancient forest friendly too!

For my sons first birthday we asked for everyone to share their favorite childhood book in lieu of toys.

As he gets older and has other children attending we will definitely use this idea for the future, not only does it mean that he will not come to expect a mountain of gifts but adults and children alike can work together in the spirit of sharing...and best of all give and recieve a gift they can enjoy together!

If you can get together with other families and ban together this halloween to collect candy wrappers you can reduce a huge amount of waste and contribute to a good cause this season.

I highly recommend joining TerraCycle's Candy Brigade. Just join for free and they will send you bags and postage- all you need to do is collect the wrappers and send them back to be recycled into a myriad of products with proceeds donated to charities.

There are a few other Brigades too for other containers.

We were at IKEA yesterday and saw the graffitti ones. I don't think they will sell to anyone besides teenagers or hipster adults. Shakepeare or not, they hurt my eyes and don't fit into most decor.

The manga ones i might have an interest in, i like the colors from what i can see in the photo but they didn't have them too look at up close.

Speaking of enviromentally friendly candles - does anyone know of a resource for buying any in bulk? Such as tea light or tad bigger sizes.

Aw man, i was hoping to see some party pics. We thought about the same theme for my little ones first birthday too but in the end it was overly ambitious and we stuck with whales owls. I think next year with some more planning we'll go for it.

Cute well dressed little mister you have there.
