Perfect Picture Book Friday - High-Tailing It Out Of The State!

Happy Perfect Picture Book Friday, Everyone!

I'm just going to 'fess up right away.

I don't have a book today.

Not for lack of trying - I read a whole pile.  But none of the books in my pile particularly struck my fancy.  And my sister was visiting and there was a visit to the seamstress about prom dress alteration and college revisit planning and lameness diagnosis for Jemma who is very lame in the off fore (or at least that's what you'd say if she were a horse) (and by "diagnosis" I mean everyone is scratching their heads because really we don't know what's wrong except maybe it's her shoulder) and work, work, work, and etc. and I just flat out ran out of time.

And now, as you are sipping your coffee and happily anticipating loads of lovely Perfect Picture Books, I am high-tailing it out of the state!

That's right.

Princess Blue Kitty and I are heading to the Green Mountains for the day so that I can hear one child present her honors history thesis at the symposium... after which I shall return home in time to hear another child sing at Arts Night.

That's the plan.

Good lord willing and the creek don't rise! :)

So please, share amongst yourselves, visit each other, enjoy all the picture books on offer this week... and I'll catch up as soon as I can!

PPBF bloggers please be sure to leave your post-specific link in the list below so we can all come visit you!

For the complete list of books with resources, please visit Perfect Picture Books.

Have a great weekend, everyone!!! :)

  5. I'm a "no book" this week too. Been taking this great picture book class online (wink) and reading lots but didn't get the post finished. So there. Have safe travels. :)

  6. Safe travels, Susanna! I wanted to post one today because I'm adding links to it for a podcast I did with Katie Davis and an interview I did for KidLit411...life is not getting any less busy. And I can see the same is true for you! Congratulations to both of your kids...how AWESOME!

  7. It sounds like having a great time will be unavoidable, so yay. Meanwhile, don't you hate reading a pile of books and knowing full well that you'll NEVER get that hour back, but still there's nothing but "meh" in the pile? Ugh.

  8. Oh well now, I don't feel so bad... because while I did post reviews today, I don't have anything for PPBF . Safe journeys, Susanna

  14. Hope your Friday was filled with triumph for all, and few bumps along the way… The Camel that Went for A Walk, just came into my library last weekend and it's wonderful! I'll have to hunt it down somewhere because I really don't want to part with it! Thanks for mentioning it a few weeks ago.
