I saw this book cover over on Milk Tooth's Rain the other day and was instantly smitten. Yay for big words and straightforward (near childish) illustrations. Bonus, it may actually provide useful information INSIDE. I know... weird, a book that includes informative contents. This book also conveniently provides a fluid segue to my current favorite song.
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros' Home. If you're not smiling after a listen then you are clearly a robot. Actually, make that a broken robot because this song even manages to break through the metal skin of my most androidy days.
