I shared some Father’s Day picks earlier this week.
Commitment to Literacy= 190 books to be donated
-BOOM!: Big, Big Thunder & One Small Dog by Mary Lyn Ray, Illustrated by Steven Salerno [**]- The illustrations immediately caught my eye. This is a pretty cute story.
-Little You by Richard Van Camp, Illustrated by Julie Flett [**]-This is my new favorite baby shower book recommendation! Words and illustrations are perfection!
-The Red Diary: The Re(a)d Diary by Teddy Kristiansen, Iilustrated by Steven T. Seagle [**- My Pick of the Week]- This was a cool idea for a graphic novel. The same art and certain elements were used in each version of the story but then the story is remixed. Art and Identity are the common themes with each one. I guess I can stop saying I don’t usually read graphic novels because I’ve read a rather good amount of them over the years. And a good story is a good story whatever the format or genre.
-Mr. Wuffles! By David Wiesner [**]- I can’t wait until this comes out in October so everyone can enjoy this picture book by David Wiesner. He continues to amaze me with his originality!
-The Story of Fish and Snail by Deborah Freedman [**]- My boss recommended this to me. This is a great picture book about friendship and getting out from your comfort zone.
*= It was OK
**= Liked it
****= Highly Recommended
I think I’ll finally finish Jose Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere this week!
