New books

We got a package in the mail the other day from Connor's godmother. In it was this beautifully wrapped present. 

I opened them up and found these:

They're books from The Metropolitan Museum of Art where she works. I've known this woman since the 6th grade and she is the only friend from high school that I still talk to regularly. She has impeccable taste and spends her days cataloguing things in the museum basement. Look at the insides of these books. 

Each page has a letter and word and then examples of that word represented by different works of art found in the museum. The other books have the same concept. 

Aren't these beautiful. I love looking at them and can't wait to share them all with Connor. There's nothing like learning letters and numbers while taking in great works of art. 

I kept the wrapping paper too. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, but it was too pretty to throw out.
