The last few days I have been at ALA with friends. It has been a fantastic experience. I have been reading a lot of F & G's (folded & gathered) for new picture books and though they have been wonderful to read, I hate to list so many books that won't be out for 4 months in this week's post. However, I have to mention at least a few.
Here are some favorites from this past week:
What To Do If An Elephant Stands On Your Foot by Michelle Robinson; Illustrated by Peter Reynolds; Release Date July 2012. - A hint of "If you give a mouse a cookie" in this book. Love the Peter Reynolds' illustrations.
Nighttime Ninja by Barbara DaCosta; Illustrated by Ed Young; Release Date: September 2012 - Love the mixed media illustrations and the twist at the end.
Penny and Her Doll by Kevin Henkes; Release date August 2012 - This is a follow-up to Penny and Her Song which is more early reader than picture book.
So, what will you be reading this week?
Here are two of the many titles that I picked up at ALA annual conference that I can't wait to read this week.
Drama by Raina Telgemeier (Scholastic; September 1, 2012) - The much awaited next graphic novel from Telgemeier.
Necromancing the Stone by Lish McBride (Henry Holt; September 18, 2012)
