Several weeks back, at our local garden center, Dean spotted a bird book. He begged to take the bird book home, and I said, "No." He mentioned the bird book whenever we went anywhere that had books on display.
Of course, this mommy broke down and went to Borders the day before we left on vacation and purchased "Birds of Minnesota". I gave it to Dean before we loaded the car Friday morning. He was ecstatic. He paged through the book most of the way to Duluth.
He took that book with him EVERYWHERE on vacation. He checked out every bird, and looked up the robin over and over.
