#WishesAndBlessings Day 4: #Miracles or witchcraft - it‘s all a matter of perspective, really. Riveting read.

Eggs Well done 👍🏼 2d
GatheringBooks @Angitron it is pretty riveting, actually. Very accessible- but also matter of fact portrayal of rape, violence, misogyny. Should come with loads of trigger warnings. 24h

Green Apple Books | San Francisco, CA (Bookstore)
post image

Book hunter forever. Spent the night with a childhood friend upon arrival from Denver, Colorado - and she knows my heart enough to bring me to Green Apple before driving us all the way to Antioch where we are staying for a few days before we fly again to Chicago for our flight back to Abu Dhabi. My circadian rhythm is so confused with all the different time zones the past ten days (across four cities - Chicago - Seattle - Denver - San Francisco).

The Turkey Prince | Izzi Tooinsky, Edwina White

Pickpick

#GratefulHarvest Day 16: Fats‘ review: “In The #Turkey Prince, Izzi Tooinsky retells the classic Hasidic tale written by Rebbe Nachman, founder of the Breslov Hasidic movement. Tooinsky expanded the original tale and turned it into a heartwarming story about a young prince who, feeling pressured to give a speech to the royal court, decided to be a #turkey.” Full review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-5u9

Happy to share that one of our upcoming presentations at the National Association for Gifted Children here in Colorado is already making waves on Twitter - as shared by the award-winning authors of the picturebooks we are featuring. What an absolute privilege to have our booklist shared by authors/illustrators we admire.

A Kick in the Head | Paul B. Janeczko
post image
Pickpick

#PoetryMatters Day 13: #Kick - this poetry anthology begs to be read aloud to your own children or to your students. There are poems for one, two and three voices – take your pick. The poems dance, leap, and swirl off the page – alongside Raschka‘s whimsical, colorful, and incredibly-original artwork. My review: https://gatheringbooks.org/2012/08/20/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-nonfiction...
