I've been thinking that I should offer a give-away. So during the whole month of March, I will be hosting book give-aways. We'll just call it March Madness.
This week, I'm giving away a copy of Kevin Henkes' Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse (c. 1996). To enter the give-away: post a comment answering: what has been your family's favorite book recommended by Read Me A Story. Post your comments by Tuesday noon in order to be eligible to win. I will announce the winner (pulled at random) on Wednesday. Best wishes!
And now for Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes: even though Henkes communicates Lilly's emotions from her point-of-view, children wince at the fickle unkindness Lilly exhibits when she criticizes her beloved teacher and adored role-model, Mr. Slinger. Watch how Henkes signature watercolor and ink drawings extend the story beyond the written word (in true Henkes style).
