Picture books, picture books, picture books. Who knew my public library had so many? And so many titles I'd never heard of, much less read. I must find many of these for my school library.
They are all from 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up.
I now stand at 290 books read. The breakdown:
0-3 books: 23/39
3+ books: 64/122
5+ books: 100/219
8+ books: 65/352
12+ books: 38/271
The 12+ books include some weighty titles like To Kill a Mockingbird and Kidnapped. I'll focus on reading these last, if at all, as my main interest in children's books lies in 0-12.
What wowed me? Clown. The Gruffalo. Poems for the Very Young. Window. Gorilla. I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato. Ernest and Celestine. Flotsam. Stone Soup.
It's Spring Break time for me. After a long, cold winter, I'm finally starting to move around again, to want to get out of my cave, and sit in the sunshine. I made stops at Half Price Books and two libraries yesterday, so I'm pretty well set for the week. Betsy-Tacy. Mary Poppins. Millions. And Making Toast and Country Driving in the grownup book category.
What are you reading this week? Anything you'd recommend? I can always stop by B&N...Hey, I'm on vacation!
