Loving Picture Books
Looking for a new children's picture book? Look no further.
Below you will find some interesting children's picture books that I discovered after joining an author blog hop. I hope you find them interesting and spread the word.
A special thank you to fellow author Gia Volterra de Saulnier for organizing and connecting all of us together. I have started the book list with Gia's book: Journey to Jazzland.

Do you know how to get to Jazzland?
About the Book
From Gia's website:
"The story is about a Flute, named Windy, who gets bored in Orchestra one day and plays some wrong notes. She meets some new friends along the way (all instruments) who then help her learn about jazz and music.
I am hoping that this book will inspire young children to learn more about music and to help bring a spark of music back to Elementary schools. I also wanted to bring Jazz back in to the fore front of children's minds. It is an American History we really should not forget about."
Join Windy Flute and all her musical friends on an adventure to find that magical place!

Miro the Dragon is a picture book written in German that has been translated into English.
"Once upon a time, there was a small dragon that was barely bigger than a child’s hand. His scales glowed in a radiant red and there were two tiny, peaked, yellow horns on his head. His name was Miro. Miro lived in Drakonia, the magical land of dragons.
Dragons of all colours and sizes lived in Drakonia but Miro was by far the smallest. He went to the dragon school every day like all the other dragon children and learned to fly, to breathe fire, to swim and to hunt. Or so he should. But Miro was afraid. He was afraid of heights, of water, of burning himself, of bigger animals and even of his own shadow from time to time.
One day after a swimming lesson in which Miro had refused to participate, his teacher called him. He watched the small dragon for a long time. Finally, he said with a booming voice, ‘Miro, I don’t know what to do with you. You are no dragon but a wimp! Go out into the wide world and conquer your fears before you come back to school.’
Before Miro even had a chance to understand what his teacher had meant, a strong whirlwind grabbed him.[...]"

About The Book
I’m Proud to Be Natural Me! is the story of a little girl who is teased about the texture of her hair. She goes home and tells her mom about it, and her mom teaches her that her hair is a part of her identity and that she is beautiful the way God created her. By the end of the story the little girl is saying, “I love how God created me. I’m proud to be natural me!”
What an awesome story. What an awesome opportunity to teach children that we are ALL beautiful as is.
