My Favorite Lines From S-Boogie's New Books

From Snow by Uri Shulevitz, wherein a little boy hopes a few snowflakes are a sign of more to come:
"No snow," said radio.
"No snow," said television.
But snowflakes don't listen to radio,
snowflakes don't watch television.
All snowflakes know is snow, snow, snow.
From Pinkalicious by Victoria Kann & Elizabeth Kann, wherein a little girl eats too many pink cupcakes and wakes up pink, much to her parents' concern:
My hair was the color of raspberry sorbet. I cried because I was so beautiful. I even had PINK tears. I put on my pink fairy princess dress and twirled in front of the mirror, while Mommy speed-dialed the pediatrician.
I love love love the image of a four-year-old girl crying because she's so beautiful. If you don't read picture books, you really should.

I loved this. Can you please make it a new feature?

If I come across more lines I'm in love with I certainly will.

I completely agree with your statement "If you don't read picture books, you really should." Everyone should. Every day.
