It is PiBoIdMo Day 3! After completing today’s idea, which involved a bear, a rabbit and the sun, I took out my picture books I picked out from the Jones Library. I love my new library! It is amazing how small it looks from the front, but how huge it is inside! I can’t wait to go back and discover more.
The picture books I chose were ones that I had known of (from reviews on Perfect Picture Books) but hadn’t had the resources or time to read. Suzanne Collins‘ autobiographical tale “Year of the Jungle” about her dad going to Viet Nam was very good. Kudos to James Proimos for his lively illustrations. “Plant A Kiss” by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrated by one of my favorite picture book artists, Peter H. Reynolds, was whimsical and sweet. I also found “My Brothers Book” by the legendary Maurice Sendak. This tale was deep and rich with fascinating illustrations. He truly was the master of the story. Finally, I chose a book of which I will do for Perfect Picture Book Friday. A tale by New England author, Jane Yolen, that has yet to be put on the PPBF list. I can’t wait to review it! Check back Friday! Have a great week!
