I was thrilled to host Rebecca Doughty at our school last week.  (Shoutout to Cambridge School Volunteers for helping to organize the visit!) She visited our second graders.  I have to say, we are now all big fans.  Her funny, cartoonish drawings and lovely text full of figurative language are delightful.

Her new book Before You
is almost a tear-jerker as we read in pages without color "I was a tail without a wag/just a bean without a bag"  Later, in pages  full of color, we read "You woke the sun/you lit the moon..."  A great read-aloud or gift book.
