Happy Birthday, Barbara Joosse!

I'm a little disappointed... I had ordered what looked to be some wonderful books by Barbara Joosse from the local library, and not ONE of them came in so that I could review them. But it's still her birthday and from what I've heard, she's a pretty great author, so, today, I'm going to focus on recommend two, based solely on reviews I've read and my thoughts on teach-ability. I have also provided a lesson plan to go with each.
