New review: A Strange Place to Call Home

by | Aug 15, 2012 | about-books, Children's Book of the Week | 0 comments

New review today! Check out the Brain Burps About Books podcast to hear all about how the first time I read A Strange Place to Call Home by Marilyn Singer and Ed Young, I had no idea what to do with it. And then how I looked at how much Henry was loving it, just copied what he was doing, and realized how incredibly awesome this book is.

It profiles fourteen animals who live in harsh or odd conditions, and tells us about them through poems and torn-paper collages. It’s truly amazing, and is especially loved by my animal-loving, poetry-loving almost-9-year-old.

Today’s podcast is an interview with Jerry Craft, all about African-American culture in comic books. Check out the details here, or head right on over to iTunes to listen.
