March is reading month in Michigan (maybe other states also?) and is accompanied by lots of events and stuff designed to get kids reading books. The kickoff event happens in schools on March 2nd, which is also Dr. Seuss’ birthday. I’m a little late for the show, but I thought I would do a whole week of kids books as a tribute to Reading Month.
We checked this out of the library, but since it’s in our house it’s fair game for this project. This is Kat Kong by Dav Pilkey, creator of the “Captain Underpants” series, and is notable by the use of real pictures of cats that have been cut out and integrated into a collage-like illustration technique. Also it’s hilarious and awesome.
