Letter Writing Club on Thursday + Postman Bear
A reminder that our monthly Letter Writing Club meets this Thursday, October 13th, from 7-9 pm. We meet to write letters and to chat about correspondence and inks and life, and we usually have treats and coffee as well. Sometimes in the shop during the day things seem a bit rushed, so it's nice to sit down with a cup of tea and your letters in front of you, and maybe a cat curled up on the table (and hopefully not wandering across your freshly inked words). We meet every second Thursday evening, and if you can't make it this month, we'll hope to see you in November. And along the theme of letter writing, I thought I would share a new favourite book -Postman Bear. Caleb is obsessed with books with flaps that lift to reveal surprises, and to my despair, we're constantly having to purchase new books, as his old books have flaps that are torn into oblivion by enthusiasm. You can imagine my delight to stumble across a lift-a-flap book right up my alley! As Caleb gets older and older, it's wonderful to be able to read books with Caleb about activities and ideas and stories that are things we want him to bring into his own life. As an interesting side note, there aren't too many children's books about bears and their iPhones. I would hate to ruin the end for you, so I'll just leave it at the first page: Bear is writing letters. Look at that writing desk! The quill and ink! Oh, the suspense. You'll have to ask Caleb what happens the next time you visit the shop.
