Oliver by Syd Hoff
I love finding books with kid's names in them. Whenever my friends get pregnant (and they are the "name-announcing" type), I start looking for a book that has their child's name as the main character in the book.
It's not always easy to find, but I try! Recently, my friend Ruth had a baby boy named Oliver. I was so excited when I discovered this book by Syd Hoff at a thrift shop! Juliet and I love Syd Hoff, but had never read this one.
We took it home and fell in love with it. We kept the thrift store copy for ourselves and ordered baby Oliver one of his own. We were able to find a nice vintage copy in great condition. (The vintage version's cover is a little bit nicer, in my opinion.)
We also threw in another favorite Ollie by Olivier Dunrea--just in case they decide to call him Ollie one day.
Do you have any good books with your children's names in them?
