Weekend Recommendation

Happy weekend, everybody!  Boy, I was really looking forward to the weekend.  It's been a long week.

I did get myself to the library this week though and that always makes me happy.  I had read everything on the "New Picture Book" shelf, so I went exploring in the general PB stacks.  I picked up a book from Barefoot Books simply because they are a publishing house I've enjoyed on Twitter and I love their overall philosophy (check out their website).  So, I was overjoyed to find a book that I just love.  It was I Took The Moon For A Walk by Carolyn Curtis and illustrated by Alison Jay.  This book is charming and a well-done rhyme (which is very rare, I find).  It would make a great bedtime book and the art is just dreamy.  Check it out!


  1. I love the bamboo background. It makes me feel as if I were in China.

  2. You are one clever cookie Megan. Read all the new section...well done...


  3. I wish my library had a new section. Well done all that reading. That book sounds delightful, I'm definitely going to look for it at my library. Thank Megan!

  4. I love Alison Jay's illustrations. I have another of her books.
