Check out the Punk Farm book! It Rocks!

I wanted to share with you a new (to me) author... Jarrett J. Krosoczka! Check out his site www.studioJJK.com

Awhile ago this author/illustrator came to visit Jake's school and there was an opportunity to purchase a book and be autographed. It really impressed Jake that he showed them how he illustrated and the process of writing Punk Farm. Jake has been making little books even since... which is exactly what is stated on the website about his school visits... "Students will walk away with a new found passion for books and the motivation to begin writing their own stories."

I had never heard of these books, but decided on Punk Farm (not knowing that was the one that would be highlighted in the presentation at school)!

Very very cute, fun, rockin' book! This is not your parent's "Old MacDonald's". Love the illustrations.

All books autographed by the band... Jake's also autographed by the author
Love the bouncer horse for the barn concert

After their encore!

The boys thoroughly enjoy it, and I enjoy reading it in a rocking manner! Good times.

Jake posing with the book for me. If you look closely you'll see his lego "hearing aids"... some of his best buds have hearing aids. So he likes to make his own to wear at home. Cute AND cool kid!

Then we downloaded songs to go along with Punk Farm! More rocking good times. They rock out and dance all around!

There's also other great books... have read great reviews for the Lunch Lady book series for older children (ages 8/grade 3 and up) that he has as well!

I always like to share when something new comes our way that we enjoy. Plus I love books, can't help it!
