A Good Book to Start with


When you feel passionate about something, you seek out information that backs up what you know to be right. This book did more than affirm what I have known all along, it gave proof that toy companies are not what they seem and that their marketing is aimed at gullible parents. If you are wondering why you should be selective about your child's playthings I highly recommend the book "Buy, Buy Baby" by Susan Gregory Thomas.

Cool! Ok, I have some suggestions for toys to review. When Eve was a baby, I bought her this music toy thing that was a brand called Kouvalias (a Greek company). They're stuff is so cute, but really expensive. Can you think of anything for James that would be similar but not as pricey? Also, do you happen to know off the top of your head of any tea sets for Eve that would be made out of something more biodegradable than plastic?
