the return of Picture Book Monday

I know faithful readers have been wondering about Picture Book Monday, and now it is BACK! Not too much time today as there are lots of other things drawing my attention. However, here are three keepers. And the server is now letting me upload the jpegs for the covers!! Ha Ha!

BLACK MAGIC is a lyrical story perfect for the first day of Black History Month (but please, please, please, let us use books with diverse characters year 'round, too). All the things Black is and can be are here lovingly illustrated by R. Gregory Christie.

Herman Parrish has continued the tradition of Amelia Bedelia in a series of books that deal with Amelia as a child. AMELIA BEDELIA'S VALENTINE is playful, something we have come to expect from this person who takes everything literally.

Piggie and Elephant are back in Mo Willems' I AM GOING! When Piggie declares that he is leaving, Elephant always the one to panic) pitches a fit. Of course, all is resolved by the last page.
