Then I thought I'd look to see what the library had that I could put out on display and guess what there was more than I thought there would be. I immediately thought of Margaret Wild and Margaret Power's Creatures in the Beard which makes the students giggle because there is a robin , a mouse and a baby possum living in Nicholas's father's beard. This book was borrowed last week as it was part of a Fathers' Day display of picture books. As well there were
• The Lumberjack's Beard by Duncan Beedie. It is a more recent version of this book, in that the lumberjack saves the animals in the trees by keeping them in his beard. It will be easier to find. It has a green message as well.
• My Dad Has a Beard by Kellen Roggenbuck
• My Sister has a Big Black Beard and other quirky verse by Duncan Ball and Kerry Millard and
• Blackbeard the Pirate by Mick Gowar (one of the Hopscotch readers)
