Using "Picture Day Perfection" in the classroom!

My and Dan Santat's book Picture Day Perfection is not just for Picture Day!

Picture Day Perfection is a fun story with an unexpected ending, and it's appropriate for all elementary school ages, including upper elementary.  (In fact, due to its subtle humor, it's particularly appealing to students in the 3rd through 5th grade range.)

Resources for classroom use of the story include:
