Unspoken. It's a little heavy for our youngest readers - about the Underground Railroad, but I understand that it is being rumored to be up for the Caldecott Award!
After entertaining us with a story, Henry drew in front of the kids. They were mesmerized. He talked about just using plain paper and black crayons and a black marker. He likes to draw with music so first he drew an animated dragon with a bugle to uplifting music and then he drew sweet Celeste (a mouse from Celeste to softer music. The thing I so love about Henry is that he makes the children believe that they can be illustrators too!
After we got back to the room, we read several of Henry's books that have been Chets Creek Books-of-the-month. The children loved each one. We will read some more of his books tomorrow. The books will be on sale later this week.
