This book will be for sale on May 10 and I suggest you make a plan to get it! I’ve read it to my own kids more than ten times already and today I shared it with two second grade classrooms.
True to Lauren Child’s work, the illustrations + text are full of whimsy and giggles. This book is a goldmine of lesson possibilities for primary writers interested in studying illustration techniques. After I read it, a second grade writer, Allie said, “May I borrow that during workshop? I have to look at it better because I think there are lots of book ideas in there.”
She’s right, just check out this page and imagine the possibilities!

Unhurried. Finding the magic in the middle of living. Capturing a life of ridiculous grace + raw stories.
