A blog about kids books that I love and I think you should love, too!

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.
