Wednesday Wow - missed - Friday First and Fancies - Denise Fleming

Sorry, I missed my Wednesday Wow posting.  So I'm doubling up today with my Friday First and Fancies post in place of Wed. Wow.

I subbed today and while rummaging in the class library, I rediscovered some old favorites to blog about. 

Product DetailsI picked up Denise Fleming's "In the Tall, Tall Grass."  It was delightful to read her book again -- about the creatures who live in the tall grass.

She wrote and illustrated many children's books and won the Caldecott Honor for "In the Small, Small Pond."
