Ama's Picture Books

My grandmother recently left me her entire collection of picture books and children's literature. The entire collection is comprised of over 300 books. I am attempting to read as many as possible in 2014.

Sky High: The True Story of Maggie Gee

Sky High: The True Story of Maggie Gee - Marissa Moss, Carl Angel

written by Marissa Moss, illustrated by Carl Angel


Maggie Gee is a fascinating woman, and this is a great introduction to her life. I hope someone has written a biography about her because I definitely want to read one (or more). I found the use of first person really interesting. I'm not sure that it added to the story (it's not a POV typically seen in picture books), but I think it was well done.
