It was fun and goofy and made me work on this blog on a wildly more consistent basis.
So I'm going to keep right on going.
Today I launch my own personal last minute blog project, which I am calling "A Book A Day In May", in which anyone is more than welcome to play, too.
Here's how it will work.
I am going to recommend one book a day, every day for the entire month. Full length reviews are kind of out of the realm of possibility at this point, but that doesn't mean I can't share some literally love!
A Book A Day In May will kick off with Picture Book Week - right now!

This is the classic baseball themed poem, written in 1888, reprinted with gorgeous colored pencil illustrations by C.F. Thayer.
It's a fantastic read aloud story, because good poems are fun to recite, even if you have to do it over and over for months, or years. It's a great book for a kid to grow into, as well, because at first it's great illustrations and brilliant language, but later, they'll start to pick up on the melancholy humor, too.
And no matter how many times I read this, I still hope maybe Casey is going to get that hit. Maybe this time....
