Weekly Geeks 15: Matching Fun

Dewey has a fun suggestion for this week's weekly geek. I'm going to change it up a teeny tiny bit, however. Her suggestion is to take close-up pictures of book covers and try to stump readers--to have them guess the title (and author?) of the books. I'm going to change that up, as I said, to be a matching game. I'll share photos of inside-illustrations of picture books, and I'll give you a list of possibilities. Then you'll pair them up to see how many you got right. I can't offer any prizes, but I can share some link love if you participate in the matching game.

P.S. Clicking on the picture will enlarge it quite a bit. So this *may* help you out.
P.S. 2 7 of the 12 I've reviewed at Young Readers this summer.

That's a good idea (I'll probably steal it...). The only ones I know for sure are 1, 4, and 11 (Pirates, Little Blue Truck, and Runaway Dinner). I'm guessing 3 is Me Hungry, 5 is Born to Read and 10 is On the Farm. Obviously, I need to find more of these books to read to my girls.

Melissa, you're right on 1,4,11,5, and 10. But three isn't Me Hungry.

Bed In Summer


In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light. 。

In summer quite the other way,

I have to go to bed by day.


I have to go to bed and see

The birds still hopping on the tree,

Or hear the grown-up people's feet
Still going past me in the street. 。


And does it not seem hard to you,

When all the sky is clear and blue,

And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?

I am pretty sure that #8 is "Splat The Cat" by Rob Scotten. His illustrations are so amazing. I really like his "Max and The Canary" characters.

You're right Book Zombie, it is Splat the Cat. :)
