About PB&J

Picture Books & Jen

You may have noticed that this blog has all of a sudden been taken over by picture books.  Don’t worry, I haven’t been hacked.  I am simply expanding Beyond the Bookends site to include my readings for the summer course I took (2013), IS 590 – Picture Books Across the Curriculum.

Thanks to the course, over the span of two months, I got to read many, many picture books…about 30 a week, approximately 300 in all.  They had completely taken over my house…in my office, on the floor, in baskets, dressers, bathrooms, my screened-in porch.  It reminded me of Wanda Gag’s Millions of Cats, except in my version, the cats are books…

Picture books here, picture books there,

Picture books, picture books everywhere.

Hundreds of picture books, thousands of picture books,

Millions and billions and trillions of picture books…

Okay, so it doesn’t flow quite the same, but you get the idea.  I promise to post often if you promise to check back often.

P.S. To access my weekly reading lists, hover your mouse over “PB&J”, then click one of the dates from the drop-down menu.  Most books are also tagged by topic/theme, so you can access them by the Tag Cloud on the right.  The lists are organized by date, starting with June 12.  You can also access them through Categories > IS 590 or Archives.  Have fun reading…’cuz I am!!!
