Part 1: picture books.
Together We Grow by Susan Vaught
The gorgeous illustrations by Kelly Murphy bring to life the story of a barn full of animals during a thunderstorm. A fox and her kits look for shelter, but they are predators to the animals in the barn. Can the animals welcome a fox for the night? The rhyming text is sparse yet rich in language. The opening words are, “Lightning gash! Windy lash!” I love this book!
