New Childrens’ Book List for 2017

I’m a big lover of childrens’ books. It’s the combination of art and story that can be throughly enchanting. Maria Papova of Brain Pickings has put together a list of seven very lovely books.

   

  

I like the artwork of “Big Wolf & Little Wolf” and “On a Magical Do Nothing Day.” I like the colors in “Here We Are” and the Story in “Big Wolf…” and “Bertolt.”

Some day, if I’m brave enough, I’ll try combining my own artwork with my own story. Some day…

Which do you like?

I don’t know if my Agnes books will last (yes, they will be a series) , but one can only hope (and work very hard to write a good story!).

What are you favorite children’s books?

Who’s Birthday is it?

Read the following line and tell me whose birthday it is.

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”

Not sure yet? Try this one.

“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”

I had never heard this one before but I like it!

“So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.”

I think you may know, but if you’re not sure, this last little bit will just give it away.

“I meant what i said and i said what i meant. An elephant’s faithful one-hundred percent!”

Thank you Seuss for all the fun. Thank you Seuss for ever one!
