Unbeknown to LMF, Janet told the other kids not to really guess that it’s a bike. You guessed – LMF guesses that her sister is getting a bike for her 5th birthday present. But instead of everyone being happy that LMF guessed the right thing, everyone is mad at her and none more than her mother.

From this experience and many others through her 4th grade years in school, LMF learns the Life Lesson that Life Isn’t Always What It Seems.

How Long Will You Love Me?

by Patti Brassard Jefferson

Whether it’s a question from a child to a parent or an adult to their significant other, that question probably gets asked more than you think…even if it just stays in your head and you are the only one who hears it. Patti Brassard Jefferson’s creative first book starts with the question and each page gives a warm, rhythmic reassurance — “I promise I will love you ’til…” Along the way to the definitive answer, you will see shopping frogs, tanning dolphins and blues-playing bunnies. The sun drives a fancy car, an octopus writes love letters and baseballs grow on trees! (All of these silly characters are also hiding a heart for you to find on each page.) So just how long will I love you? The answer is perfectly clear in this book!
