It’s Monday so join in the fun and share what you are reading with the community at “Teach Mentor Texts“.
Here’s a few of the picture books I’ve read over the last week.
Blueberry Girl by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Charles Vess.
A special book, one that I really enjoyed. It is written as a prayer, originally for his goddaughter.
Tessa’s Tip-Tapping Toes by Carolyn Crimi and illustrated by Marsha Gray Carrington
Tessa can’t help but tap dance. Love the language throughout the book. A charming book.
Tea Party Rules by Ame Dyckman, illustrated by K. G. Campbell
What will happen when a real bear crashes a tea party? A charming book.
Waynetta and the Cornstalk by Helen Ketteman, illustrated by Diane Greenseid
This is a Texas fairy tale, based on “Jack and the Beanstalk”. The language was definitely western and even the giant’s “fie-fi-fo-fum’s speech was altered. Children will enjoy it; I found it just okay.
