I picked up the AGG collection at my local big box this past month. My daughter and I shopped for it very carefully -- did we want hardback or paperback, the three books set or the eight book set, and had a good time talking about reading and what we might knit. The Bee was very worried she might have to start a new knitting project, and I had to re-assure her that the teddybear-scarf-in-progress would be fine.
The books have been lurking on our bookshelf every since, and my daughter has been asking me at least twice a day when we can start reading them. I am so happy it is almost October.
