I LOVE to play catch
But playing catch-up can be a little frustrating
The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! is by that crazy funny man Jon Scieszka and illustrated by Lane Smith. This is the classic story of the 3 little pigs told from the point of view of the wolf! Hilarious!!
One is by Kathryn Otoshi. This is an incredibly stunning book. The illustrations are about as simple as you will ever find and the story is as deep and meaningful as a well. It’s about colors. And it’s about numbers. And it’s about bullying. And it’s about how One voice can make a difference.
Fluffy and Baron is a true story by Laura Rankin. It is the story of Ms Rankin’s childhood pets – a German Shepherd Dog named Baron and his best buddy, a duck named Fluffy. A feel good story of friendship. It will bring smiles of JOY!
So, that’s kind of catch-up with the books. Now I’d like to share a couple of links with you to some interesting articles I came across recently.
The Nerdy Book Club blog had a really nice post from Chris Dexter about reading dogs. Ms Dexter is a teacher and librarian in Montana and dogs from the R.E.A.D. program have been visiting her library for several years. You can read her post HERE.
Maclean’s has an interesting article about how adults are turning to PICTURE BOOKS for hope and inspiration. You can check it out HERE.
And I will leave you with an interview with Ms Otoshi –
I wish you Joyful Reading from
Your friendly Library Dog
