BINGO!

I babysat Logan over the weekend which of course is always an adventure. I was especially excited to tend him because I had a special surprise:




It's my fellow tall amazon woman's first children's book.




I had no doubt that he was going to love it. The kid loves kitties as evidenced by his own epiphany:


"I love kitties my whole life!"




So dang cute.


So we read the book together Saturday night.  (Never mind, Julia, that it was at 11:00 at night.  I also fed him ice cream while we later watched Silence of the Lambs.   What?  He loves sheep.)


As soon as we finished the book, and as I went to the computer to email Julia to tell her how much I loved it, Logan said,


"Let's read the kitty book again!"


So we did.  About 5 more times.


The book is about a cat named Bingo who goes outside his owner's house for the first time and tells of all the adventures he has.  From run-ins with roosters, chickens & other cats, Bingo explores his beautiful new home.




If you've ever read Julia's blog, you know she has a way with words that is naturally poetic. This book is no different. The photography is amazing and it was all done by Julia herself.  You can tell how much time and love she has invested in this book which she dedicates to her children.




The true judge of a children's book is of course a child and according to Logan, it passed with flying colors.


I wanted to keep the book at my house to read to him whenever he came over but he insisted he take the kitty book with him and because I'm like the best aunt in the world, I let him. (That along with a six pack of bud light.  It's his favorite, and less calories than the original.  Lindee, you can thank me later.)


I'm going to buy another copy for Brolan who also loves kitties as he has three of his own!




If you want to add Bingo's Big Adventure to your library, it is available on Amazon (Books are temporarily out of stock but more are coming) or just go to Bingo's website and click on the Pay Pal option:

What a good aunt! Even thinking of the diet calories in beer... they WILL thank you later! :)

Please tell me that cat doesnt destroy Mr. Rooster in that last picture... that would be a sad story.

Rebecca Jo - trust me. Ain't no cat nowhere can destroy a rooster. Unless it's a mountain lion. And trust me, ain't no rooster nowhere that don't deserve a little clawing.

But back to Bingo. ISN'T IT THE CUTEST BOOK EVER?!

I just love it.
