a few weeks ago, velzy picked a book titled the pink refrigerator by tim egan.
it rules. i clap when i am done reading it. the first time i read it to velzy she said "i didn't like that one too much!" and i told her it was the best book ever! and now, it's her favorite (what if it was always that easy to get your kids to like things you like?).
it's about a little mouse guy who's motto is to do as little as possible and he sits and watches tv all day. one day he discovers this pink regrigorator in the junk yard that has a new note on it everyday and inside is everything you would need to to the noted activity- make picutures, read more, plant a garden. then one day the note on the fridge that says "keep exploring" and there is nothing inside. he is sad and goes back to sitting on his lazyboy. then, in the middle of his favorite show he gets up and packs up all his things and goes out to explore the world around him, leaving a note on his door that says "went to find an ocean".
