You Can Do it Bert by Ole Konnecke

Published August 7, 2015 by One Page at a Time

Bert is a bird sitting on a branch…he has mentally prepared himself….he is going to take a running start, oh wait, scratch that, he is eating a banana. Told with little text and fantastic illustrations, this story will start conversations and encourage littles to not give up!   I couldn’t find a website for the author but did find him on Gecko Press.


Picture books galore

Gem by Holly Hobbie:  A wordless picture book about Gem, a frog, with a letter written to a granddaughter from her grandmother. I am in love with wordless picture books and I found myself longing to have a letter from my grandmother while reading this.


Froodle by Antionette Portis:  I love the work of Antionette Portis. This book had me laughing out loud at those silly birds. Great illustrations and fun text I think this is worthy of a storytime reading!


Say Hello to Zorro by Carter Goodrich:  I think I found out about this book from Goodreads. It was the kind of story that made me think “if I was a dog, that is how I would want to live my doggie life”. A fun story with great illustrations. I read that the author, Carter Goodrich, is the main character drawer dude (sorry, can’t think of the title they used:-) of Despicable Me among other famous animated films. I love when people cross over to other forms of artistic expression.

The Adventures of Polo by Regis Faller:  This is not technically classified as a graphic novel but being as it has panels on the pages, I decided to categorize it that way here. Lovely illustrations tell a very fun story where absolutely no words are needed. The Adventures of Polo
