Both Pollyannas are obsessed with hands – but in a good way. Honestly, I had this post written long before Anna-Liza posted her tribute to hands; I was just waiting for the July-August issue of the magazine to come out before posting. Really, ya’ll. We are just weirdly tuned into the hands thing this month. No, really. But I digress… wow, digressing before I even begin. Again.
Two, three, four… and then there was the time…
Ya’ll may remember that I write a kid’s book review column for Awareness Magazine. So I read new children’s books all the time. Authors: If you want your book(s) reviewed in the magazine, click “contact” on that link. The magazine runs reviews of grown-up books too. And lots of other cool articles. And the editor is awesome!
For the July-August 08 issue, I read and reviewed a wonderful picture book, and I decided to use it as one of my books for Pollyanna’s Reading in Wonderland Challenge:
- Challenge # 9. ‘And what is the use of a book,’ thought Alice, ‘without pictures or conversations?’ : Read a children’s picture book.
The book is “In Grandpa’s Hands” by Marlena E. Uhrik, illustrated by Barbara Cervone. A simple and beautiful book, it is perfect for very young children, for pre-readers and early readers, for older children – and adults too. It is a wonderful book for a grandparent and child to share. I highly recommend it.
Ya’ll, I taught preschool for seven years and did my Montessori thesis on reading aloud to preschoolers. Besides my mom creds. So, when I say this is an awesome book, trust me.
And while you’re there, read the current issue. Check out the great articles and information.
