March picture book reviews of the week

Miss Moore Thought OtherwiseContinuing with our Review of the Week catch-up, here’s the only picture book featured in March: Miss Moore Thought Otherwise by Jan Pinborough, 
illustrated by Debby Atwell. I’m thinking this isn’t likely to be a Caldecott contender, but it’s definitely of interest to those of us in the children’s lit field. Love her or hate her, there’s no denying ACM was a mover and shaker in her day!
