Fascinating and so thoughtfully done.
A Fine Dessert by Emily Jenkins
"One recipe is made during four different centuries and though the recipe stays the same the times do not. Clever way to teach history, that.

The illustrations are gorgeous.
Delicious even. "

Danielle and 2 other people liked Allie's review of In Mary's Garden:
In Mary's Garden by Tina Kugler
"A really lovely picture book about local folk artist Mary Nohl. Unlike a lot of non-fiction books, this one would make a good read aloud for a family program and would pair really well with a craft. "
In Mary's Garden by Tina Kugler
"Great story of a creative soul. Love the Wisconsin connection (subject and author/illustrator)! Even living in Milwaukee, I didn't know about Mary's story before (although I had heard the rumors of the witch's house) - glad we now have this beauti..." Read more of this review »

Ralph starts out feeling like he does't have a story to tell and ends up finding one, followed by many. Hooray!! (Also, one of his sage writing tips includes "eat lots of chocolate.")

“Make it a rule never to give a child a book you would not read yourself.”

Linda Urban
“I told Dad about yesterday...I told him how I made all those mistakes.
'But you kept on playing?' Dad said. His eyes got wide when he said it. I could tell he was proud.
'Everybody does,' I said. 'You can't just get up and walk away every time you mess up. You'd never get anywhere.”
Linda Urban, A Crooked Kind of Perfect

“In order to rise
From its own ashes

Burn.”

Madeleine L'Engle
“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
Madeleine L'Engle

Rebecca Stead
“Mom says each of us has a veil between ourselves and the rest of the world, like a bride wears on her wedding day, except this kind of veil is invisible. We walk around happily with these invisible veils hanging down over our faces. The world is kind of blurry, and we like it that way. But sometimes our veils are pushed away for a few moments, like there's a wind blowing it from our faces. And when the veil lifts, we can see the world as it really is, just for those few seconds before it settles down again. We see all the beauty, and cruelty, and sadness, and love. But mostly we are happy not to. Some people learn to lift the veil themselves. Then they don't have to depend on the wind anymore.”
Rebecca Stead, When You Reach Me
