Plus What I Did Last Week,
Featuring Chris Case and Isabelle Malenfant
– From Jacob’s New Dress
This morning over at Kirkus, I write about Mac Barnett’s newest picture book, President Taft Is Stuck in the Bath, illustrated by Chris Van Dusen — and why I think it might be great for your Information Literacy 101 lesson with elementary students. (I’m talkin’ to you, school librarians.) That link will be here.
Last week, I wrote about two brand-new picture books that are about so-called gender-nonconforming boys — Christine Baldacchino’s Morris Micklewhite and the Tangerine Dress, illustrated by Isabelle Malenfant (Groundwood Books, May 2014), and Sarah and Ian Hoffman’s Jacob’s New Dress, illustrated by Chris Case (Albert Whitman & Company, March 2014). That link was here, and today I’ve got a bit of art from each book.
