The best part of my job working in an elementary school library
is working with the little children
discovering and sharing childrens literature.
I get to read wonderful stories to the students.
This past week I shared the book
written and illustrated by Bill Thompson.
Chalk; magic sidewalk chalk.
|beautiful illustration in the book Chalk|
The boy in the story gets an idea and decides to draw a ferocious Tyrannasaurus-Rex....
the dinosaur emerges and havoc ensues in the park.
Love the genius way the children solve the problem.
They draw storm clouds and rain
to wash away the dinosaur....
In the end one of the monarchs was left fluttering in the rain.
These images were in my mind all week as I read.
Then this morning I went to
recuerda mi corazon
Postcards from paradise
and I knew I would share this there.
