Two fabulous picture books to share with you this morning.
"Freight Train" by Donald Crews is beautifully graphic and takes the reader along on a simple, compelling journey until it's going, going, gone.
"Owl Babies", by Martin Waddell is surprisingly emotional as three little owls wait for their mother to return home and, of course, she does.
I mention these books today because they were the respective favorites of each of my children, now teenagers, who finished school yesterday. It feels like they are growing up so quickly, so I wanted to remember them this morning as picture-book- loving toddlers.
Books are wonderful in the moment of course, but they are also the catalysts for great memories. Enjoy.
