Loved it!

I found favorite book from this children's literature class that I'm taking.  It was a huge surprise! 

I had to read ten children's informational (a.k.a. non-fiction) books.  I looked up some online and then went to Powell's this morning to hunt them down. 

I only found two--Amelia and Eleanor Go for a Ride, which was a really good book.  The illustrations were great, and it was done in a very cute format.  The other was this one...

I LOVED this book!  It is by far my favorite of this class.  The author was born in communist Czechoslavakia.  In this book, he outlines the history and rules he lived under as he grew up.  His drawings are wonderful and tell much of the story themselves.  It made me grateful to have the freedoms I enjoy everyday.  If you get a chance, check it out.

We will check them out! We go to the library often, and we lie the 'true stories section" a lot!
