Summary: (from my library’s catalog) Heartwarming stories of friendship, fun and going to bed” – That was tooo short…but still true!
I like this book because: it‘s so cute! I need to invite another 5 year old for a read-in. I say ‘another’ because on the inside I am still 5! Just wanna hug all these characters too! Also celebrating female bookmakers this Women’s History Month! See my illustration celebrations on Instagram – HERE
Resources/Activities: Don’t wait for the other 5 yr old to come over, just READ. Make a fort – yes, even if you are an adult. Include a sturdy lamp or excellent flashlight, a few fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies, and your favorite beverage with cookies (milk for me!).For more Perfect Picture Book Friday picks with teacher/parent resources, check out the list on Susanna Hill’s blog HERE
