Happy Holidays from The Bookish Elf

Cozy Little Book Journal and The Bookish Elf are taking a bit of a break, trying not to read the news too much before bed, and just generally enjoying time with family and friends. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and recharge your batteries for the year ahead!

CLBJ and TBE will return soon with new reviews, as well as some "year in review" type posts, including some of my favourite--and possibly LEAST favourite--books of 2012. See you soon!

All About Boats: A to Z, by David Aiken and Zora Aiken (illustrated by David Aiken)

All About Boats: A to Z
Authors: David Aiken and Zora Aiken 
Illustrator: David Aiken 
Publisher: Schiffer Books 
Publication Date: October 9, 2012 
I love the concept of this book--an alphabet book about boats and all things boat-related--even if the execution could be better. Some of the rhymes are a bit strained (it's never easy to find a good word for 'x') and the artwork's a bit old-fashioned, but overall it's cute. I'm sure it would be a hit with the boat-obsessed three- to seven-year-old in your life!
