Picture Book Month: School and Food
Yesterday's theme was school with a wonderful post from Picture Book Champion Alexis O'Neill (The Recess Queen, Loud Emily, The Kite That Bridged Two Nations.) I love kites...one of my favourite preoccupations is kite flying. It brings an interconnectedness that is not unlike reading a good picture book...takes us all to another place and time while keeping us right here.
And what better food for the soul than a picture book that has been shared throughout the family, as one generation curls up with the little ones and provides them with that essential nourishment...love and wonder. As Johnette Downings' (Marooned on a Dessert Island) post tells us;
Take a look on your own shelves, even if they are just the shelves of your memory...what books do you find there?
