Book Hunting Expeditions Reading Life

[BHE 308] Library Haul of Mostly Picturebook Biographies

Library Haul and Picturebook Finds


Myra here.

Sunday is my favourite day of the week. This is the day when we share our book hunting expeditions from recent or long-ago travels, our library haul, books that we receive for review, or books that simply hunted us down until we surrendered to their collective will. We are weak bibliophiles, after all.

This week, I am sharing mostly my picturebook finds that are in keeping with our current reading theme on memoirs, biographies, first-person narratives.
