Emily and Albert
Well the school year is here. One of my fond memories of returning to school was getting to return to friends. So I thought I'd feature a fun little BFF picture book, Emily and Albert, by Jan Ormerod and illustrated by David Slonim. Join the adventures of Emily and Albert in this five chapter book of the give and takes of friendship. Emily and Albert couldn't be more different from one another. Emily is dramatic and opinionated to Albert's calm, easy going ways. The balance works out just great for these two. The chapter list includes: Noses, Hiccups, Dancing, Feeling Better and, my favorite, A Good Book. I love all the personality that David Slonim adds to this twosome through his cartoon illustrations.
