I looked at the calendar this morning and it said that today was Friday.
So that means that it’s time for a Perfect Picture Book review.
I’m taking part in Carrie Charley Brown’s ReFoReMo Challenge this month: http://www.carriecharleybrown.com/reforemo/reforemo-day-6-joyce-sweeney-applies-the-plot-clock
We are reading picture books and learning to use them as mentor texts. So you can imagine what my dining room table looks like – stacks of books all over the place – eating is over-rated anyway, right?
And of course, I’m still participating in Kristen Fulton’s 52 Weeks of Charting Non-Fiction: http://www.kristenfulton.org/dig-in/52-weeks-of-charting-nonfiction
