Haiku Baby

My favourite thing of late is Haiku Baby by Betsy Snyder, the board book I recently gave to my expectant friend (who informed me she’d read it to her belly just as soon as the fetus had ears). The illustrations are gorgeous, suggesting all variety of textiles and collage, and the haiku are lovely, and as true to the haiku tradition as ones in English can be. “Rain: Splish splash, puddle bath!/ raindrops march in spring parade–/ wake up sleepy earth.”

Canada's Greenest Shopping Bag

Currently in love with Canada’s Greenest Shopping Bag from President’s Choice. In which I do not tote my President’s Choice organic groceries at all, but instead it’s the perfect size to hold my lunch, a novel, obligatory odds and ends, as well as my baseball glove. And I really would buy one for everyone I know and love so they could share in the delight, but I don’t have to. They can buy one themselves. For my new favourite fashion accessory costs only 99 cents!
