Here we are in the last chapter of In Pictures and In Words by Katie Wood Ray.  Thank you for joining us in this book study.
 
Carmine:  A Little More Red by Melissa Sweet is a great retelling of Little Red Riding Hood in an ABC format!  In addition to the amazing layout, this would make a great vocabulary book!

  1. I loved this chapter! I also love Carmine A Little More Red book. I've used that with 3rd and 4th graders in creative writing. I need to add the Just Ducks book to my collection. I think Nicola Davies is amazing at writing non-fiction for young readers.

  2. Hi Deedee,
    I wanted to thank you for starting this book study. It's been great. I've learned so much and am excited to try out illustration studies this coming year.
    Thanks again,
    Sandi
