Merry Christmas Eve! I hope Santa brings you all lots of books under your tree tonight. :)
Some of the picture books I read and enjoyed last week were:
Time to Sleep Sheep the Sheep! and Let's Say Hi to Friends Who Fly! by Mo Willems
My new favorite thing is to spot The Pigeon in Mo Willems books that aren't part of The Pigeon series.
The Monsters' Monster by Patrick McDonnell
An adorable, feel-good story about a trio of monsters who create a monsters' MONSTER to be the biggest, baddest monster of all time, but what they get instead is a gentle giant who is just happy to be alive.
Seed by Seed: The Legend and Legacy of John "Appleseed" Chapman by Esme Raji Codell, illustrated by Lynne Rae Perkins
Beautiful, educational portrayal of the man known as Johnny Appleseed, John Chapman. It's one of those books you just feel better knowing it's in the world, being read by kids and adults alike.
