Mixed Media MondayMadeline by Ludwig Bemelmans--introducing the star of so many books. I always love a little girl who tells the tiger at the zoo, "Pooh, pooh," especially when it encourages my little girl to tell the cows at Grandpa's and Grandma's, "blablablabla." What can I say, I'm all about brave girls.
It's A Bratz Country by Rod Dreher--he discusses the girl trouble of a highly sexualized culture. Sad but true. I do love the quote about Bratz. So much I had to read it to Chris.
A fitting counterpart to the culture, Cinderella by Steve Curtis Chapman--what more can I say. (Weeping warning. I was holding Abigail when I listened to this and she became concerned that I was sad.)
