this, right?? Then you've got to see THIS!!! Rob Scotton is amazing - his stories are hilarious, kids love them, and his illustrations just top them off! Splat the Cat is no exception - and this one is perfect for the first-day-of-school-jitters. We laughed out loud at this one - and it is sure to be in my Story Hour reads this fall.
Another wonderful find?? Susan Jeffers', My Chincoteague Pony. First of all, Susan Jeffers is another author/illustrator that you absolutely CAN NOT go wrong with. But this story is amazing - it is a true story of a little girl that wants her own pony. (Every little girl's dream!!) It is touching, it is one you will be recommending over and over. AND I LOVE the ending - it is one of those wonderful - pay-it-forward stories. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
