The day before we left for our beach vacation last week, this embroidered beach bag showed up from Simply-Bags. It's got Juliet's name on the front (in case you can't see it!)
It's quite sturdy and well-made and roomy enough for a nice supply of toys and books. I like that it has a strap on the back so she can sling it over her shoulder. She likes that it is pink and it has her name on it.
She was thrilled to have her own bag to pack with all her very favorite and necessary travel items (who can embark on a trip without at least 6 of your favorite stuffed animals?)
I was able to convince her to add a few books to the bag. Here's what we took:
My Mom Has X-ray Vision by Angela McAllister
Have you read this one yet? It has become a huge hit at our house. It's a perfect read with Mother's Day approaching--this book has caused Juliet's new career aspiration to change from astronaut-artist-baseball player-teacher to just plain superhero. Not only is the story cute, but the illustrations are incredible.
A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon
Another mom tipped me off to this one--somehow I had never heard of it! But now we are in love. Juliet is now diagnosing everyone with "a bad case of _________".
Simply Bags has a ton of bas to choose from--I'm kind of eyeing this one as an update to my library bag. The one I have now doesn't quite hold 30 books (our library's limit). This one looks roomy enough.
What kind of bag do you carry to the library?
