I chose an author and illustrator:
Reynolds, Peter H.
for the Book:
How to draw the sky without blue paint? Who said the sky had to be blue? Imagination, creativity and determination make this book a great life lesson.
Rude Ramsay and the Roaring Radishes
by Margaret Atwood
illustrated by Dusan Petricic
This is another one of Margaret Atwood’s “tour de force”, making a story with as many words as possible starting with the letter R.
Finally, I can not talk about the letter R without including a title with a particular word starting with R . This word is not only found in many titles but is more than often the first word. You may have already guessed… the word is rabbit. In fact I will be starting an entire new blog totally devoted to this adorable little creature also known as a bunny.
Here is my favorite Rabbit title (among the books I have read so far since I started this blog)
The Rabbit Problem
by Emily Gravett
A book looking at Fibonacci’s sequence (determining how many rabbits will be born in a year, starting with a pair of new born rabbits) . Emily Gravett’s beautiful illustrations are filled with details and creativity. A pop-up page simply reveals that the end result is a big number.
