We've got nearly 50 books out from the library this week, and only three are mine, so we've been busy with fun new reads! One of the kids' faves is Food for thought by Saxton Freymann, which is also reviewed on James Patterson's ReadKiddoRead site (marvelous resource for finding excellent kids' books). This site recommendation is from my friend, and fellow book-lover, Jerrie. The kids adore the inventive, bright, engaging food-as-art in this clever, and very comprehensive book.
And, Jerrie also gave me the book Picture Books by Ruth Culham, which is an annotated bibliography for teachers. In it, we found two additional faves this week: Hoops by Robert Burleigh (if you like basketball, you'll love this great descriptive and poetic book), and Many Luscious Lollipops by Ruth Heller (covers many great advectives with wonderful illustrations).
