It's been a while since I posted a favorite children's book. I had the luxury last week of spending some time in the children's book section at Borders just browsing through some great books. I found this new little treasure hot off the press.
the little bit SCARY people
written by Emily Jenkins and illustrated by Alexandria Boiger
Some people are a little bit STRANGE,
or a little too LOUD,
or a tiny bit MEAN.
Some people are just
A LITTLE BIT SCARY.
But I bet
if you knew them--
if you knew what they like for breakfast,
and how they treat their pets,
and how they sing along to show tunes
or read cowboy stories on the couch--
you'd know that maybe
most people aren't so scary after all.
The illustrations are perfect and go along with the great message of the book.
People really aren't that scary at all.
