I was so happy to receive these 2 very different children's books recently. They are targeted for the 3-8 year old age group.
You Are Light; Aaron Becker
Candlewick Studio - 2019
You Are Light is a gorgeous die-cut board book that opens with a vibrant sun to warm our sky and the land around us. Soon helping the sea produce rain to help things grow like the leaves on the trees that keep us cool and also lighting the moon at night.
As you hold each page up to the light you can see the color transformation of the light around us. Simply beautiful!
The Whole Wide World and Me; Toni Yuly
Candlewick Press - 2019
The Whole Wide World and Me features a dark-haired girl, possibly Asian, who explores the world around her. The more she discovers outdoors and all the delights which surround her, the more she begins to feel a part of the the bigger picture.
The artwork is bold and bright and textured yet, it's never over powering. There are just a few words on each page but yet little ones can see how the very small can be part of the very big world around them.
Both of these books are just lovely.
