The Chicken Saved Me!

Welcome to my Saturday. I got to choose this week's Saturday Scavenger Shots word. I tried to think of a word which would allow me to incorporate the program I presented this afternoon. You know how I love presenting programs and there are generally photos to remember the good times :)  The word for this week is CLASSIC.

The program was called "Mice, Frogs, & Fish! Oh My!"  It was a celebration of CLASSIC children's author and illustrator Leo Lionni. We had a great time!  Here are a couple of CLASSIC shots -

Here is a display of some CLASSIC picture books for children. Leo Lionni wrote about 40 books, so this is just a sampling of his work. I love his art.


We are pretty sure our puppet play version of Five Little Monkeys is destined to become a CLASSIC of modern theater. The cast members were very talented, although the director was a bit of a goof.

Thanks for dropping by for this CLASSIC edition of Saturday Scavenger Shots.  I am tagging Jasen @ Swap Gas & Moonlit Reflections to choose for next week. Now, inch out of sight...

I think I might have had a couple of his books when I was a tot. I can't really remember for sure, though. This definitely looks like a classic time at the ol' library. Thanks for the tag, I am going to choose...STONE.

I have kept a dozen or so classic kids books - some of them I never got tired of reading to the kids.

Those look like some enjoyable books, reading children's books is so great! Your theatre production looks like it was a lot of fun ;-)

Jasen: You may well have. He's pretty cool.
Thank you for a great new word to ponder :)

Secret: I have a little collection of children's books at home and at my desk. Some of the pictures are stories are so lovely.
And some of the books my kids loved when they were small were soooo boring for me!

FW: As an artist, you may appreciate some of the picture book illustrators and what they create.
We really had a good time :-D

I wouldn't be surprised if your puppet play version won a Tony Award. Cool books, I'll bet my little nephews would like some of those!
