celebrate Picture Book Month

If you think you are seeing a lot of picture books of late, it is because November is Picture Book Month. I enjoy having time to plow through all of these lovely books for children. They are quick reads but extremely satisfying, too. Hope you enjoy looking at the incredible work of artist and author. And, once again, I am writing short blog haikus for each book: blaikus.
