proposal: picture books too??

Hi y'all,

I have an odd proposal for the Misfits. Would anyone be interested in us choosing a picture book to look at each month as well? Not instead of the chapterbook but in addition. It needn't be a picture book that relates to that month's novel, though that would be coo now and then. (Maybe occasionally, parallels would unexpectedly appear post-reading!)

I'm suggesting this both because I often don't have time to read the novel but want to discuss something here; and also because I absolutely heart picture books and discussing them.

Totally shout me down if you're not interested. :)

rebecca, i think that's a great idea. i'm always looking for great new picture books, anyway. maybe we could come up with a list of 3-5 books for june (or the summer, whatevs) to read. any suggestions?

Monkey and Me
Orange Pear Apple Bear
