this week in the elementary library...

The_Stranger_(Chris_Van_Allsburg_book)_cover_art I always read this one to first grade in September. I'm a devout Chris Van Allsburg fan. I love anything and everything he does and this one, The Stranger, is particularly weird and wonderful. It's about the coming of fall without being corny and literal. It's bizarre and amazing.

I suggest reading it to 25+ six year olds and then ask hem what they think happened...the answers can be priceless.
