First, a quick thanks to the inspired Darci Pattison for launching Random Acts of Publicity. I'm thrilled to be taking part. This morning, I recommended Deb Lund's MONSTERS ON MACHINES and Liz Mills' THE SPOOKY WHEELS ON THE BUS to my youngest son's preschool teacher. They're perfect books for almost-Halloween time: one rich in monsters and rhyme with endpapers loaded with marvelous machines; and the other adding a holiday theme and explorations of counting and patterns to a familiar song. I'll be working my way up from picture books to YA in my "Random Acts" posts all week. Hope you'll join in or share a random publicity comment here!
