Read Up: Four for fun

Pull out your library card & reserve these four new books from some favorite authors & illustrators of mine!

Sam & Dave Dig a Hole
Mac Barnett & Jon Klassen
It's a new book from the team who brought us Extra Yarn!
THIS yarn is about a pair of boys who dig a hole--a really deep hole.  They vow not to stop digging until they find something spectacular, and as the readers, we get to see how close they keep coming.  The end of this book kind of blew my mind.

Lola Plants a Garden
Anna McQuinn & Rosalind Beardshaw
I love Lola, and am always happy to see a new adventure with her.  This time, she's got some gardening to do--and of course, she wants to do some research with some library books, first!  Lola's is a family who loves to read.

If You Were a Dog
Jamie A. Swenson & Chris Raschka
What would you do if you were a dog...or a fish...or an insect...or a dinosaur?  The language of the book tickles the ears, while encouraging children to think about what makes them unique as people.

Where is the Rocket?
Harriet Ziefert & Borroux
This book is full of big words--well, big font--and a big space adventure! Borroux's bold collages grab the eye, while Ziefert explores concepts of place: over, under, around & through--and beyond!

Check these books out! Have fun with them, & let me know what you think. Do you have any favorite books about digging , or dogs, or gardening--or whatever? Please let me know!
