A while ago, I signed up to be a reviewer for Speakeasy. It's a pretty sweet deal: you get free books that look interesting to you, and in exchange, you agree to write a review on your blog within 30 days of receiving the book. The first book I got was a picture book called White Flour, written by David LaMotte and illustrated by Jenn Hales.
I'm going to be the librarian at my school in the upcoming school year, and I was wondering about how/when/if to read this aloud. I think that it would probably be best for the 2nd/3rd grade age range. K/1st might still be too young to get what's going on, but the 7-9 year old age range is usually up for books that have some weight to them. I'll check back in after I've read it to them and post their reaction.
