9781416924340: It's Picture Day Today! (Richard Jackson Books (Atheneum Hardcover))

An annual event in every elementary-school classroom is the taking of the group portrait. Here, the “kids” are made up of buttons and bits of string, cardboard, feathers, grommets, and such, and are a pretty disheveled lot before Glue (late; “stuck in traffic”) arrives to sort everyone out and settle everything down. An imaginative invitation to seeing, to creative crafts, to story-hour performance.

About the Author:

Megan McDonald is the author of the Judy Moody books, and is a gifted storyteller for the youngest listener. She lives with her family in Sebastopol, California. Her website is meganmcdonald.net.

Katherine Tillotson is the illustrator of several children’s books. For this story, she cut paper created from a centuries-old technique to make pictures. Visit her at katherinetillotson.com.

From Booklist:

For the first half, this one is pretty confounding. “Here come Buttons, followed by Feathers,” begins the text—and, sure enough, a bunch of buttons and feathers are twirling their way down a school hallway, soon to be joined by springs, rings, and “Wheely Things.” More and more seemingly random objects join the parade, all of them chattering their excitement about Picture Day. Unfortunately, a key player—Glue—is late, but when he (she? it?) shows up, everything comes together (literally). The book folds open to reveal a four-page-wide spread wherein all the various knickknacks have arranged themselves into an entire class of bizarre beings. It’s a payoff that will have many readers paging backward to find what parts of whom came from where. Though the palate seems a bit muted, Tillotson’s collage work, both creative and endearingly clunky, will awaken the inner cutter-and-paster in almost any young child. An ideal book to pair with a craft session. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Daniel Kraus
