  3. Hello, I too couldn't find your nonfiction monday post today, so I apologize also for my late arrival. I'm joining in for the first time -- I'm a huge Anastasia Suen fan (and of all her books, blogs and classes) and learned about Nonfiction Monday through her. Thanks so much for letting me join in. My post is about Dave the Potter by Laban Carrick Hill and illustrated by Bryan Collier.
