two quick thursday reads...

Pulled these from the local elementary school this afternoon - check them out at your local library or children's bookstore.

Don't Bump the Glump! by Shel Silverstein

A pure Silverstein delight.  This was actually his first poetry collection and the only one in color - it was published in 1964 and recently re-published in 2008.  It contains all the zaniness of Silverstein's better known poetry and the addition of the watercolor is marvelous.  My kids had fun picking out their favorites and reading them to one another.
This book will cause you to smile.

ish by Peter H. Reynolds

I pulled this as it was standing on the top of the shelf and I was drawn to the cover art.  The story really drew me in.  My son then took it and read it and decided to check it out so he could share it with his brother later.  Any artist who has struggled with not liking what they are creating will enjoy this book - a wonderful tale of being confident in what you create.
