Today I Sat by Jean S. Lee, illustrated by Sally O. Lee, 20 pages soft cover with beautifully hand-drawn illustrations.
This delightful children's book colorfully describes activities one can do while sitting. It is often used in school environments as a teaching tool to help kids create their own scenes. For example, today I sat down on the ground and found a zillion ants busy at work. The illustrations of the scenes are all hand drawn in colored pencil.
