As part of my Commitment to Literacy: Picture Book It challenge, I wanted to spotlight one book that I’m completely in love with. Throughout the month, I’ll do multiple posts based on the book. I hope you will end up picking up the book and joining in on the conversation.
I hope everyone has taken the time to read Love!
At my regular weekly volunteer shift at the library, we spent some time talking about it. We shared which text and images resonated with us the most. There were so many! The whole book is special and will have something for everyone. Not only do I recommend that you pick up your copy now but I highly recommend that you read it with others (kids and adults) and talk about it!
This week, I wanted to share some insightful interviews the creators of the books have been doing for the book recently.
