A Nice November Book and an Upcoming Thanksgiving Book Linky

In November by Cynthia Rylant captures in pictures and words so much about this time of year.

 I really like that she talks about some of the more obscure nature phenomena- like bees burrowing down into the earth and berries becoming "treasures" to birds.  And she does it so poetically!

The Thanksgiving pictures at the end of the book are particularly warm and cozy because they have been preceded by the stark, cold outdoor scenes.

 Cynthia Rylant has written a LOT of children's books. What are some of your favorites?  

Also, on Monday, November 7th I'll be writing about a couple of my favorite Thanksgiving books as well as providing a linky for anyone who would like to talk about their favorites.  I really hope some of you all link up.  Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, and I would love to hear some more good books for this time of year!

Looks like a warmly written, lovely book.

My kids (5, 4, and 2) really enjoy the Poppleton and Mr. Putter and Tabby series but I must say, "Mr. Putter and Tabby Pick the Pears" is probably our favorite. It's quite cute!
