What Rachel Wants to Buy This Week - Episode 2

Two-Dees Owl by North American Bear Co.
Located in the Baby Room plush

It's hard to tell from the picture, but this adorable owl is almost flat--like a really well-loved pillow. He's delightfully soft, too, and entirely huggable despite its shape. With embroidered eyes instead of plastic ones, this depth-challenged friend is safe for all ages, even grown-ups! I love him because of his cute stripey wings and dramatic eyelashes.

All Together Now: Beatles Stuff for Kids of All Ages board book and CD, written by Kevin Salem, produced by Little Monster Records
Located in the Music section or in the Baby Room

This book-and-music set, illustrated and sung by kids with guest vocalists Rachael Yamagata, Marshall Crenshaw, The Bangles and Jason Lyle of Grandaddy, features eleven of the Beatles' songs. The part I like best, though, is the book itself, which includes silly poems about the songs and Beatles factoids to keep the reader informed, all in sturdy board book format. This is a great kids' intro to Beatlemania!

That's all for now--tune in next week for another exciting episode!
