"When a teacher calls a boy by his entire name, it means trouble." —Mark Twain

WHAT WE LOVE THIS WEEK

Back to school. Or as some refer to it, the most wonderful time of the year. If you've got littles heading to kindergarten, Owen by Kevin Henkes is a must. As is Chrysanthemum. And for those who find themselves in sticky situations where the teacher calls them by their entire name, Lily's Purple Plastic Purse to the rescue. Henkes: don't do school without him.
