Two for You
1. Under a Pig Tree: A History of the Noble Fruit (A Mixed Up Book) written by Margie Palatini and illustrated by Chuck Groenink
My new favorite book. So clever and meta and funny!
2. Ally-Saurus & the First Day of School written and illustrated by Richard Torrey
Very cool layered first day of school imagination book! The illustrations add a ton to the story.
