BiblioFiles #47: Thunder Cake, Picture Books, and Identity


After we all make fun of Adam for choosing a cop-out selection for his WAWR title, he gently puts us in our places by demonstrating the beauty and depth that a simple children's book offers. We talk about the true value and audience of a good picture book, and then meditate on the very grown up ideas that are found in Patricia Polacco's Thunder Cake.
