I love this book that you can take turns reading with a friend!

Petunia (the pig) offers Effie (the cow) pointers on how to gussy herself up for the fair and win a blue ribbon. Effie realizes that it is not about the "trappings" but what you have to offer that makes you a winner. Fun!

Friendship makes everyone a winner!

 Summer is especially fun in Wisconsin because we have so many fairs! In this book,
you will fall in love with Billy and his adventurous goat! This book exudes the excitement and enticements of the fair. It also ends in an unexpected way that teaches a valuable lesson.

Welcome to my blog!

Hi, everyone!
Welcome to my blog! I am a children's librarian & library director with a passion for picture books. I live my life in an upbeat manner. Today I read a book that tickled my funny bone and warmed my heart. I posted it on Goodreads and my personal Facebook page. I asked myself, "Why does this strike such a chord with me?" Answer: Because news and media are so overwhelmingly negative, I feel reassured and encouraged when I can go back to a "childhood state of mind" and read a charming picture book. It dawned on me that it might be fun for me, creatively, to keep a running blog of these books! I hope you enjoy and are uplifted. Thanks for reading!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sincerely, Elizabeth M. Timmins
