On Sunday, April 22, the WSJ featured A CHIP OFF THE OLD BLOCK, along with other "picture book love letters to the earth," for Earth Day. So much fun!

Thanks, Vijaya!  :hug

I know! Me, either! I have a PDF of the article, but it's too big to attach here, unless someone knows how to make it smaller.
