#Friday5: Lauren Castillo’s Picks!
We strongly believe in the concept of Hands-On Literacy and believe that reading is a 5 senses experience. With this in mind, our #Friday5 will jumpstart your weekend reading adventures!
This week’s #Friday5 is brought to us by the AMAZINGLY talented Lauren Castillo. Lauren has illustrated over a dozen picture books (like last week’s City Cat) and you will want to wallpaper your house with her art!
Without further ado: Lauren Castillo’s #Friday5

What will Telly see under the microscope and through his magnifying glass?
Take a few minutes and check out eloisedraws! She made the most fantastic alphabet!
So, that’s that! Edna ate everything.
I want to thank everyone for following me on this funny experiment. I’ve loosened up my painting and gotten to explore a single character. (I love her. I keep daydreaming about sewing up a felt Edna. You know, in all my free time.)
About halfway through I started getting ideas for other alphabets, so I’m going to take about a little break (and post some other stuff), then start a new one.
I’d go on, but Tumblr is showing this gif of Ben Stiller and it’s unbelievably distracting. So, thanks again for the notes and support. Keep watching, if you please.
