A New Book
"A Pocket Can Have a Treasure In It", by Kathy Stinson with illustrations by Deirdre Betteridge is one of the new books on our shelves that is somehow being overlooked. I love this book because it is a game and a story in one. The lovely watercolor illustrations tell a story of a grandmother's visit to a little girl on a farm on a bright summery day. The story ends with the arrival of another member of the family, a new baby. The story is also a game; "Can a spoon have a noodle in it? Can a blanket have a wiggle in it?" The dual nature of the book makes it great for multiple readings. Enjoy!
