It was another great week of new releases!
[****] Beautiful lyrical story about creativity and imagination. Beautiful black and white illustrations. I loved the image of his dad, Walter Dean Myers, which caught me by surprise. This book is a must-read. This should win all kinds of awards!
[*] I have very tolerance for people (even kids) who destroy books. And I hate it when the parents are OK with letting children destroy them instead of teaching them the proper care and handling of books. I will give this book a re-read though to give it a second chance.
[***] A cute story about a ball of yarn who goes off on an adventure only to find there’s something missing. I love how the story celebrates independence and the importance of maintaining connections.
Stay tuned tomorrow for reviews of new nonfiction picture books!
