ideas-are-all-aroundIdeas Are All Around

This delightful book tells the story of an author and his dog, Wednesday. As they walk through their neighborhood, they look at sunflowers, say hi to Frank, a turtle, who makes a quick dash for the water and disappears, and they watch a train rumble by as they walk uphill to a big purple house that belongs to their friend, Barbara. Thoughts open to other thoughts and ideas are born, often transforming into other ideas until it is evident that ideas really are all around, you just have to know what to do with them. Published by Roaring Book Press, this title has Common Core connections. The Caldecott Medal award-winning author-illustrator, Philip C. Stead, lives in Ann Arbor.
