My teaching partner loved Okay for Now as much as me. We were amazed by the compassion and persistence shown by our fellow (though fictional) librarian, Mr. Powell. We did not want the book to end. We wanted to keep it and read it again (which I did...and then bought my own copy). And she chose the perfect book as one of my birthday gifts. It is The National Audubon Society Baby Elephant Folio: Audubon's Birds of America. In its 1 and 7/16" of binding, the hundreds of images lie in full color! What a convenient way to look at the Audubon images (presented in Okay for Now in black and white)! I love it - and the dark chocolate cupcakes baked by her husband, the Peanuts Moleskine (which we now know how to pronounce correctly), the two Carol's Cookies, and the very cool Williams Sonoma sponges (that look like cream wafer cookies in their dehydrated state). Whenever I give Okay for Now, I will definitely give this complementary book as well.
