This week we continue to celebrate the slightly off-beat view of Craig Frazier, the author of Lots of Dots, our featured book for April. Last week he helped us see dots everywhere we looked. This week, he invites us to see everyday things, like a farm and a fishing hole, in entirely new ways.
The first children’s book Craig Frazier ever published is Stanley Goes for a Drive, starring an ordinary farmer and his pick-up truck. At least, Stanley seems ordinary. But when he drives his truck out to milk his cow, magical things start to happen.
The second book starring the farmer is Stanley Goes Fishing. We bet you can guess this is not your usual fishing trip. Stanley has no luck catching any fish until he notices the reflection of some clouds in the water and decides to cast his fishing pole into the sky. You have to see it to believe it.
Please let us know what you think of our new additions on our Facebook page. We love hearing from you!
With all my best,
