I have been blogging about books a lot lately, haven’t it? Well, here is another one. It is not part of the Book Battle. It’s just something I saw at the bookstore, and picked it up for a friend’s baby.
I thought it was so cute. “Omen desu”
“Omen” means “mask” so basically a book of masks. The masks in this book were very Japanese, which I thought my friend would love because, well, she is Japanese.
Sorry for the sideways photo.
Anyway, the baby sees the mask. Ooooh! Scary!
But ta da! It’s actually just a moo moo cow! Not frightening at all. Silly baby!
I’ll be honest. I would love to buy this book, along with millions of others. But I can’t.
No Extra Money + No Extra Space = No Extra Books That We Absolutely Don’t Need
I actually do buy quite a few books, but the majority of them are for my son’s learning. And then a few “grownup” books that I absolutely want to read. My new year’s resolution is to read more middle grade and YA in English just for myself. I read to my son every day, but it takes a long time to finish a book. There are lots of books I am interested in. So I decided I should just read them for myself. (Especially the ones I feel my son absolutely won’t be interested in.)
