Blood Is Thicker

My nephew got his very late birthday present from his Auntie Wendy today. Upon opening the package for him (hey, he's only three) my sister told me he said:
*Gasp* It's a BOOK!
Yeah, he was excited about it. I figure I only have a couple of years left before he'd rather have toys that could potentially poke his eye out (or his sister's eye out) for his birthday than a book. For now, I'm enjoying it while it lasts.

LOL. My little cousin loves books but her brother hates them. Go figure.

Even when they get to the eye poking toy stage they still like books. I'm known as the auntie that gives books. That's my rep in the family. Only now that they are older I give book store gift cards so they can pick out something they like on their own. Maybe they're lying to me, but they still seem to get a kick out of it. Of course there's also lots to buy int he book store besides books too.

Wendy, I sent you an email. Let me know if you didn't get it.

My son and grandson LOVED Freight Train. I can quote it. I didn't know about this one. Must check it out.

I believe it's the same story, but this edition allows you to slide open the train cars to see what's inside.
