First books

Lil' Genghis got his first book today, and the second, third, and more. He was even read one of those books: "Dr. Seuss's ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book!" -- all the way from Aunt Aunnie's Alligator to the Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz.

We got some great deals through eBay user leamster1. These little books get pricy -- "one fish two fish red fish blue fish" runs $6 in a small waterproof (read: "slobberproof") form. And then she threw in a cool backpack that, unfortunately, isn't in dad's size.

More deals are available on eBay by searching for "seuss lot new".

Edit: Our Brazilian readers won't have a clue who Dr. Seuss is, because he rhymes in English. He's like the ... Pele of children's books, OK? Decades later, his legend lives on. If adults of any nation are intrigued, you can check out some of his adult works here. Adult. I warned you.

Edit by mom: On the other hand, dad has never heard of Monteiro Lobato either.

  • Very cool!! I just wanted to congratulate you! My mom is "leamster1" and I'm expecting in March! We're expecting our second child, and my parents are going to be grandparents again! (I love having such a supply of Dr. Suess books from my mom! :)) Enjoy your pregnancy and little one! And, the books!! :)

  • OK just lemme know when the kid is old enough to read Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke, and then he/she will get a ton of books from uncle Rod here :)

  • You know, there's a version of Dr. Seuss's "Oh the Places You'll Go" meant to be read to the baby *before* he's born. I think you should add that one to your collection ... :)
