The Autumn Book Basket

As summer makes way to fall…
Our summer book basket has given way to the Autumn selections… and interestingly enough- the tones of the basket are all muted russets and oranges, deep greens and golds… just like the season. The Little Ones have enjoyed delving into the selections already- and tonight we drank deep of four special favorites…
