So, Day #2 of 2011. Here is #bookaday #2.
I love Tedd Arnold's Fly Guy and here he is in a new adventure: BUZZ BOY AND FLY GUY (Scholastic 2010). This simple small format picture/chapter book is a perfect one for one of my new presentations this year: The Changing Landscape of Literature and Literacy. It has a story within a story. How is that for complexity for young audiences? Buzz'pet is Fly Guy. One night Buzz tells Fly Guy that they are characters in a book he (Buzz) has written. Off they go to a land where they are captured by pirates, attacked by a dragon, and finally escape back home. <2>
And here is a photo of the resident of the back bedroom from Orlando eyeing her canolli.
