I’ve read 315 picture books this year; but blogged about very few. That doesn’t count the 42 new picture books the library received this week.
One of my favorites is Wait by Antoinette Portis. It reminds me of when ML was little. We had to stop and look at every rock, bug, stick, cat, dog, and shiny thing we passed. A four block walk to the park often took fifteen minutes. One of the joys of being around young children is seeing the world through their eyes. No matter how hurried we are, they always seem to find something to remind us why it’s important to slow down and wait.
I promise I won’t keep you waiting any longer. I’m back to blogging about picture books. And Julia will keep us up to date on middle grade novels.
