The Walkabout Orchestra

When this gem arrived in the mail I was rather excited, I have always been a fan of the Where’s Wally type of books and this one sure didn’t disappoint.  The Walkabout Orchestra Postcards from around the World, is a beautiful book.

Lola Dutch is a Little Bit Much

Sometimes there is just something extraordinary about picture books, they look like any other book but there are elements that make it unique. Lola Dutch is that for me, in its simplicity there is beauty and the hidden treasure in the dust jacket adds flair that can only come from the creative mind.

The Artistic Literacy Experience

Recently I did a couple of different story times based on dinosaurs at two different libraries. I was excited to use the Knock Knock Dinosaur book by Nick East that I recently reviewed at both the story times and it was a hit! Both sessions were different sizes so the other books I chose were based on those groups, so the other books I used were different at each session.
