May 2009 Calendar of Children’s Books

I've turned the pages of my calendar, celebrated May Day yesterday... You know how on May 1st my son would bring a bouquet of flowers, put them on my neighbor's front porch, ring the doorbell and run away to watch her surprise look with joy! In the land of books for the month of May, here's what we're looking at:
