New Releases: March 10, 2015

10 Mar

It was another great week of new releases!

My Pen by Christopher Myers

[****] 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!

    Oh no! Hope to hear more on The Boy and the Book! I loved David’s other wordless picture book The Bored Book… was looking forward to this one as well.

    My Pen sounds fabulous. I hadn’t even heard about it. I wonder how it slipped by me. Thanks for the review.
