This printed list of resolutions fell out of my daughter’s ballet book (#5 below).

There was a teary moment when I discovered this grade one list today, however, my daughter did accomplish all the items on it – including becoming an architect, bibliophile (especially of Jane Austen books), cross-country runner, and having many, many wonderful friends.

Here are ten of our well-loved, beautiful children’s books:

1.  The Balloon Tree by Phoebe Gilman
2.  Corgiville Fair by Tasha Tudor
3.  Amy’s Goose by Efner Tudor Holmes, illustrated by Tasha Tudor
4.  Masquerade by Kit Williams
5.  Of Swans, Sugarplums, and Satin Slippers by Violette Verday, illustrated by Marcia Brown
6.  Little Grey Rabbit’s Storybook by Alison Uttley, illustrated by Margaret Tempest
7.  Ox-Cart Man by Donald Hall, illustrated by Barbara Cooney
8.  Beatrix Potter The Complete Tales by Beatrix Potter
9.  The Eleventh Hour by Graeme Base
10. Who Goes To The Park by Warabé Aska
