We spent a good part of the morning (the other part was spent soaking up the winter sun in the park) in the children's section of our local bookshop, reading and flicking through picture books. It might be a little while before my two are ready for Aesop's fables, but I couldn't resist the exquisite illustrations in Unwitting Wisdom: An Anthology of Aesop's Animal Fables by Helen Ward. Maybe, I'll just enjoy it myself for the time being...
