Picture Book Saturday

 
 
 
About the Book: Moose really wants to be in the alphabet book. Zebra has a plan and has the alphabet organized but Moose has other ideas.
 
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: How have I not shared my love of Z is for Moose? And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book! It rivals Robot, Zombie, Frankenstein as my most favorite and adored picture book of the year.
 
This is one of those picture books that just never seems to get old. It's a blast to read aloud, especially if you really act out Moose's part-his excitement is infectious and you can't help but give a dramatic reading as Moose when you read this one. And the illustrations are fantastic. They really add to the humor of the story and it's fun to spot Moose on the pages. You read this book and try not to laugh-it's just that great. Seriously, I've read this book numerous times this year and I find something new I love with every reading.
 
Z is for Moose a must read for any picture book lover and a welcome addition to any library collection.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
