My New Favorite Book!

I picked up this AWESOME book at the library. I didn't know at the time this was a Caldecott Medal book. I ended up with a very old edition of this book from the library. I had a slight feeling I was going to love this book. Its a about a little boy who is invited to have tea with the Queen and King. The first time going over to the palace he asks if he can bring a friend. Well, the friends end up being exotic animals. I don't want to give away the ending. So, go check out this book at the library. Logan wanted me to read it over and over again to him. The illustrations are amazing and the animals are great. I'm going to do some research and try to put together a unit study for this book. Also, I'm going to try to see if I can find anymore of her children's books at the library. A truly wonderful book especially for mom's with little boys.

I LOVE this book too!

A unit study would be terrific! How fun!

Did you get the read version? Our library has this book as just the book as well as the book with the CD. I love lsitenign to books on CD so I thought I'd throw that out there. Soemtimes the narrators and creators of the CD can add so much to the story that we cant add.

Anyway, I'm glad this treasure of a book has been discovered by someone who can appreciate it's beauty!
