MY FAVORITE CHILDREN'S BOOKS YOU'VE PROBABLY NEVER HEARD OF
- •Frog Belly Rat BoneIt's about sad looking and gray Cementland. A boy conjures up a creature to serve as guard to a treasure box he found among the junk pile. The story, the illustrations- everything is perfect about this book.
- •Wilfrid Gordon McDonald PartridgeThis little boy lives next door to a nursing home and he's buds with the residents there. In an attempt to help Miss Nancy find her memory, he asks his friends there what a memory is. Their answers and his response trigger an ugly cry every time I read it.
- •Odd VelvetVelvet doesn't act like other kids and she's amazing for it. Kids think she's strange at first, but as the school year progresses, they realize that her differences make her fun.
