Byrd Baylor's prose is breaktaking! I'm In Charge Of Celebrations joins The Way To Start A Day, as standards in my teacher training workshops as I guide elementary educators in finding the framework within which to put curiosity and the response "belief systems". . . so that we can stop using labels such as myths, stories, religion. . . even scientific notions. They are all the product of people being curious about their world. It is a wonderful world and consider also Byrd Baylor's Hawk I Am Your Brother, The Table Where The Rich People Sit, and of course - Everyone Needs A Rock, and Your Own Best Secret Place. . .and of course The Way To Start A Day. We've a special section of our library shelf at home, for all of them. . . read and re-read. And now sharing them with a new generation. But this one is about marking a very personal calendar that get's carried over from year to year with the very things YOU choose to make a celebration of. . . like the day you say a triple rainbow. . and a jackrabbit in the distance saw it too. . . and agreed it was worth remembering. That the person telling the story is a young woman/adolescent girl works for me. . . but the wonderful part is being alive and aware of ones surroundings and seeing wonder everywhere!
