I just found a new favorite children's book author and illustrator: Patricia Polacco. I checked out two of her books from the library last week, and we just read them for the first time tonight. They both got thumbs up from the boys, and yours truly. The first one we read tonight is Thunder Cake, complete with a yummy recipe, which the boys begged me to write down. The second one is Chicken Sunday, which made me cry. That really freaked them out. It was a good cry, the kind you do when you see someone do something really nice. I looked up the author online and found out that she started publishing when she was 41, so that gave me some hope! I also found out that she was born in Michigan, and after a 30 plus year hiatus, lives here again. Check her out--she seems to be quite prolific.
