I wrote yesterday about our recent re-discovery of picture books.
While we have found many great new titles, these stand out to me. In case, you too are experiencing a bit of a picture book slide, here a few to motivate you…
Open This Little Book: Written by Jesse Klausmeier and illustrated by Suzy Lee
A brilliant book about color, size and surprise that is impossible to describe with words. I had read many reviews before seeing it for myself and I was totally wowed.
Water in the Park: Written by Emily Jenkins and illustrated by Stephanie Graegin
We have read this book, that chronicles the life of a park throughout the day, at least five times. The writing is calming and the illustrations beg to be reviewed again and again.
How To: Written and illustrated by Julie Morstad
This book is a fun twist on a how to with the words saying one thing while the illustrations, perhaps, say another. I found myself imagining what each gorgeously illustrated page would look like framed and hanging on our walls.
