A nice read for the kids

Today was a kid day. The kids had no school so I took them off to Ape Cave at Mt St Helens. The best part was the nearby lave tube through which my eldest crawled. Unfortunately, Don's Donut Depot had sold out of doughnuts, so the way back was less fun than it could have been.

All this kid talk has me thinking of the latest fave kid books in my house, the Cat Club books by Esther Averill, recently re-issued by the New York Review of Books. The stories tell of the lives of cats in New York City. Given that I am at best neutral towards cats, it is quite something that I find the books charming. The kids find them hilarious. I'll have to get a hold of the Halloween volume before next Friday.
