I discovered recently that I’d never actually read this book to Ella. How could my Boston-born girl not have read that city’s most famous picture book? I have remedied it, and she’s loved the book. In fact, the other day, there were some drops of water on the kitchen table (one big and then about half a dozen smaller ones) and she said, “That’s Mrs. Mallard and Jack, Oack, Quack, and those other ducks.”
Carnivores by Aaron Reynolds and Dan Santat – This reminded me of that shark scene in Finding Nemo. The carnivores are getting such a bad rap, that they try to take up salad-eating instead, which, shockingly, is much less tasty than a juicy piece of prey. Happily, a fellow carnivore, the Great Horned Owl has some good advice for them. All’s well that ends well, unless you’re a delicious zebra.
P.S. You can see previous favorites of Ella’s here.
