There are so so so many good books that start with the letter M it was difficult to choose.

But, I did.

Two books, in fact

Two that are special to me for different reasons.

the first:

unconventional librarian

My Lucky Day by Keiko Koszu

This is a funny tale of a smart pig who happens upon a hungry fox.

The fox thinks he’s going to eat the pig, but the pig outsmarts him!

There are so many levels of humor in this book it is appropriate for all ages.

The next book I’m featuring is

Moses: When Harriet Tubman Led Her People to Freedom by Carole Boston Weatherford

The illustrations are breathtakingly beautiful by Kadir Nelson

You don’t even need to be able to read to understand the emotion in the story

look at the pain in Harriet’s face

And look at the changes in size of the lettering convey different meaning.

Isn’t that a must add to your multicultural collection?

Do you have an M book for me?

My very favorite M book as a child was called “Mary Ann’s Mud Day” by Janice May Udry.

The illustrations were so cute! I used to put on a bathing suit and have mud days of my own with my mother. She tells me now all the neighbors thought she was nuts, covered in mud like her daughter! But we were inspired by the book. It’s long out of print now. I used to look for it in every public library I worked in.
