It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. Jen from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers have adapted it to focus on Picture Books to Young Adult Books.
I know that this is A What are Your Reading? post but this past week was spent preparing for my first conference call for the Schneider Award. Since my reading selections are confidential, I am going to use this post to celebrate Picture Book Month.
So, I am sharing a favorite author/illustrator with everyone this week...
A few years ago, I read my first Bob Graham book. Since then I have read several more. Even though I haven't read all of the books by Graham, I have loved those that I have read. There is something gentle and kind and special about Graham's work. Graham can make every day events such as tasting ice cream for the first time or bringing together a neighborhood or the first step of a baby be both every day and momentous.
If you haven't picked up one of Bob Graham's books, Picture Book Month is a great time to discover these fabulous books.
So, what are you reading and how are you celebrating Picture Book Month?
