Maira's Books

In January of 2005 I started this blog as a record of books I’ve read as I was afraid I would forget what I have read. I have often referred back to my own blog to remember a book's contents or see what I have read by an author. I have enjoyed passing my books on to friends or recommending books to read. I know I have missed recording some, but in general I try to keep up with what I have read or listened to.

Kurmītis un bikses - Eduards Petiška (2011)

This was a delightful kids book by Czech writer Eduard Petiška and illustrated by Zdenek Miler. There is a whole series on adventures of the mole or "kurmitis." Looks like they originally came out in the 1960's and have been recently translated into Latvian. The problem is basic, the mole has found lots of objects, and needs some pants with pockets to put them in. He goes around to all the other creatures of the woods and asks for help. They promise to help him if he helps them. So we learn to help each other, about different animals, and the process of making a linen cloth from plant to finished pair of pants.
