Meet Billy Twitters

Welcome to the inaugural Book of the Week post.  I love books.  I mean, I love books.  At last count our home library had 4,000 volumes.  My third grade classroom library has another 900, and my husband is a high school librarian.  Each Monday you can join me here to see what I've been reading and loving.  You'll find a little bit of everything and a whole lot of children's books.  Welcome to some of my favorite flax golden tales. 

Billy Twitters and his Blue Whale Problem by Mac Barnett

If you are a teacher who wants to get your students to read every part of the book - even the author's note - this book is for you.  Just look at the end papers.

If you are a parent who has a crazy, kooky, dreamy kid (and who doesn't?), this book will make you a hero at bed time.

If you are a parent who has a child who likes to laugh, this book will have you all in stitches.

If you are a tired, slightly grumpy adult who needs a minute to remember the fun of childhood, this book fits the bill.

If you are an illustrator, you would really benefit from using Adam Rex as your unofficial teacher.

If you are a reader who has ever been a kid, I just know you will love this book.

And if you are a kid... oh, have I got a treat for you!

Eep! I love it . . . I'm putting it on my list of books to get my nephew (perhaps I should have one for me, as well).

Love, love, love books!
I will be watching for your recommendation, as very soon my little guy will be looking at your recommendations. He is already developing a love of books and often can be found sitting on the floor or in his little chair flipping the pages of his board books.

Oldies, but Goodies
