I spent one day reading and then listening to the birdsongs of birds of the US. Each bird mentioned has a QR code that takes the reader to the birdsong of the bird. What an excellent book!

Ozma of Oz by L. Frank Baum
Birdsong for the Curious Naturalist by Donald Kroodsma

The Real Wizard of Oz: The Life and Times of L. Frank Baum by Rebecca Loncraine (Bio)

Thank you, Bonnie of Bonnie's Books, whose post last week reminded me of how much I enjoyed reading picture books in 2021 to celebrate Black History Month. Above is my calendar for 2021. I've decided to start a picture book reading celebration for 2024.
Here are the powerful picture books I've read so far for 2024 Black History Month. I hope you will check some of these out and share them with others.
