Have you been to Storybird.com? It is this great site where you can create your own story book with the art that is already provided there. It is a lot of fun and great writing practice. But more importantly right now, I am a semi-finalist in this week's competition and I need your vote! My story "Like A Barrel of Monkeys" (under my pen-name "rosencrantz") can be found under the November "Curiosity" challenge. You can sign up for free and vote for my story. Voting is only open this weekend! Please go cast your vote for my book (or someone else's if you are so inclined). : )
For the weekend recommendation, I'm going to go with a great "just be yourself" book. Fair Cow written and illustrated by Leslie Helakoski. I'm a sucker for a story that involves a state fair in any way. I really enjoyed this one and so did my kiddos. Enjoy!
