Welcome back to the magical world of Poppins Book Nook for the month of May 2015. Storybook learning is fun for all children. We all know that writing a storybook is not always a fun process but we all love the end result with the fun stories, brilliant illustrations, and magical settings and characters we all get to experience with our children in these storybooks. When all is said and done, authors and illustrators can sometimes get special recognition for their hard work. One such way is through is winning the Caldecott Medal.
Each month we will share our reading adventures with all of you on a different theme. We have a wide variety of age ranges joining us this year so there should be something fun found on one of the co-hosts sites each and every month for everyone. Here are our themes for the 2015 – 2016 year of the Poppins Book Nook:
