Week 26 PBID Question

It's the middle of March, so it's certainly not the first day of school. (Although the first day of spring is right around the corner.) But even in the middle of the year there can be a first day of school. Like for Molly.

Molly lived by her grandmother who gave great advice. Even though Molly was the shortest student in first grade, her grandmother said, "Walk as proudly as you can and the world will look up to you." But then Molly had to say goodbye to grandma and her friends and move to a new town.

That means Molly has a first day. Not the first day of school, but the first day in a new school. This picture shows Molly on her first day at her new school.


When Molly moved to a new school, there was a classmate who called her names and made fun of her. What was the name of that classmate (who learned a very important lesson)?

Week 25 PBID Answer

Week 25 PBID Question

This week's PBID challenge question features one dapper looking fellow. Top hat, black suit, black bow tie ... a person might think that tiger is going to the opera at a super-fancy theater or something. Maybe he is. After all, he is a proper gentleman living in a city of other proper animals that always mind their manners. But things aren't always what they seem.


While this tiger is dressed nicely and appears to be a gentleman, he really wants to loosen up and have fun. According to the book, what does Mr. Tiger want to be?

Week 24 PBID Answer

Week 24 PBID Question

There are so many great picture books, but in my opinion, the best picture books are the ones where you notice new things each time you read them. There's always something new, and it's especially those little details that have been there forever but suddenly surprise you after already reading the book 100 times that make the book stand out.

Take, for example, this week's image for the Picture Book Identification Challenge. I have read this book so many times in the last 25 years, but I never noticed a small detail in this exact image. Look at how those flowers are all wilting. They're falling over like they're dying and all falling away from that cute character. I never noticed that until today.

On to Week 24, and this week there are two questions. You may answer one or the other or both or even answer both questions in two separate comments. Good luck!


What is this cute character's name? What is the name of this book's narrator?
