The Bosnian Drop

I learned more about the conflict in Bosnia from one of the stories in Jesse Eisenberg’s deliriously funny collection, Bream Gives Me Hiccups, than from twenty years of news reports.  I’ll ascribe this more to Eisenberg’s talents as a writer than to my own lack of erudition (I hope), and to toast those talents, I’m releasing The Bosnian Drop.  Please be more careful than I was when you drop your shot.

 

The Bosnian Drop
1 glass Karlovaċko Croatian Beer
1 shot Baileys Irish Cream
Slivovitz

  Float a small amount of Slivovitz on a shot of Baileys.  Drop into a pint glass of beer.  Drink immediately.

Books Inc. Kids Review - Black and White Toys by David Stewart

Black and White: Toys by David Stewart
Publication Date: March 3rd, 2015
Publisher: Scribblers
Genre: Board Books
Ages: 2-5

Eyes on children's most beloved toys! What would you like to play with—the teddy bear? Blocks? A rubber ducky? Little ones will happily gaze on black-and-white pictures of some of their favorite things. This striking and stylish board book features bold images especially designed to hold the attention of infants from birth to one year. And the special fabulous die-cut sparkly shape on the last page will delight baby!

This book is terrific for infants! It is easier for infants to distinguish black and white versus colors. Each page is replicated. The Toy is Black and White on the page, then White on Black on the following page. It is a very cool concept. The last page has a glittery surprise (a glittery duck). We have it on great authority that 8 month old Connor loves this book to be read to him and he says “it tastes good too!”
