Buzzz.... Mommy and Daddy are snoring.
Buzzzzzzzzz- there goes the alarm clock. It's time to start a busy, buzzy day.
Buzzz "Daddy's silver razor smoothes his rough face."
Buzzz.... Mommy grinds coffee- ok, the best coffee in the world comes from this little place in the East Village on 2nd Ave. and St. Marks called Porto Rico Importing Co. This coffee is a Must Have in our house!

Buzz is a book by Janet S. Wong that perfectly depicts my life in the morning:
"And Mommy runs to catch my cup and the apple juice spills and her toast pops up and the clothes go tumbling round and round until-
Buzzzzz She runs to the dryer and drops clothes on the floor and hops on one leg to put her right sock on and hops on her other leg to put her left sock on and blows her hair dry
until it stands straight up."

Being a printmaker, my eyes connected with this book immediately and Margaret Chodos-Irvine is a Master of linocut printing. You must check out her site and see her other book illustrations. Absolutely Gorgeous!

  1. This sounds a lot like my morning too! I want to check out Ella Sarah Gets Dressed by Margaret Chodos- Irvine, it has received a lot of recognition. And I'll have to get some of that coffee : )


We love to read your thoughts : )
