Useful time wasting...

Over the past few days, I've been reading picture books from all around the world, thanks to the rather remarkable International Children's Digital Library. I found this link while wearing my librarian hat, but I read the contents much more as a writer. I highly recommend a trip.

This week's library read-alouds:*

I Can't Said the Ant - Polly Cameron
Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain - Verna Aardema. Illustrated by Beatriz Vidal
The Secret Knowledge of Grownups: The Second File - David Wiesniewski**

*for those who care, most of the time this will be a partial list.

** I will continue to read this over the course of the next 7-8 weeks, as well, as I think it works better in short bursts rather than all at once. I won't list it each week, though.

One of the next books I will read with my second graders is "Bringing the Rain...".

I can't wait to see these "Secret Knowledge" books. I have heard about them, but never seen them.
