Thank you Paula for suggesting this author/illustrator, we have loved her. She has very interesting stories and each with a lesson or virtue to discuss. Her illustrations were also very interesting, some featured bright reds in certain parts, some showed actual pictures among the drawings. Ballerina Rosie really liked The Butterfly, and I have to say, I loved it too, I love stories from that time in history. It was sad, but had happy parts too. I think we are ready to read Anne Frank as a read aloud! We really enjoyed getting to know Patricia Polacco and can't wait to see what author you come up with next. We are off to the library because Babushka's Doll is reserved for someone else and we have it!
