I love this fun new book by two of my favorites. Not only are the illustrations darling and silly, but the story and dialogue are to die for. Just kidding.
Sometimes words are not enough. Beautifully illustrated, Karascoet's heart's-eye view of the vastness of school and the playground and feeling alone, wordlessly demostraties the power of compassion and the beginnings of friendship.
That was then, when some kept themselves separate from others. This is now, when compromise and compassion have proven essential to living peacefully amongst others, no matter the differences. What I just said, in "kid language".
All colors matter, and all kinds of people matter too. A gorgeous new picture book with a message that lands it right next to De La Pena's Love and Jeffers' Here We Are.
Who knew there was such a need for a counting sheep tutorial? This story packs some silliness and inventive instruction, alongside Russell Ayto's usually hilarious illustrations.
A sweet, colorful celebration of friendship and storytelling, by Caldecott Award winning author and illustrator Greg Pizzoli.
These illustrations are so funny little kids can't help but gather around for the mystery and excitement. Great storyline for the elementary school set too!
The Rabbit Listened is the story of a toddler with block vision and productivity. Stumped by the possibly intentional collapse of a play block tower, many characters offer solace and support, covering the gamut of valid responses. Finally, when the child relates the whole incident and ideas for revenge or rebuilding, the fact that somebody simply listens and hears is most inspiring.
