Read any good books lately?
Welcome to Talkin’ About Thursdays! Today we’re talking about good reads.
I’m a firm believer that you never outgrow picture books.
I love them, and so do my kids.
And there’s one picture book I recently reviewed for the Sacramento Book Review that I thought was especially magical:
All the World, written by Liz Garton Scanlon and illustrated by Marla Frazee, is one of those books that, when you first pick it up, you want to hug it.
It’s that beautiful.
And when you open it and start reading, you want to hug it even more.
The book follows different families throughout their day, showing how their lives interconnect and cross paths…
children climb a tree while their grandpa watches,
families shop at the farmer’s market,
people spend time together, reading, laughing, and eating.
One of my favorite things about this book is the way it celebrates relationships, families, and the big and small details of life.
“Nanas, papas, cousins, kin
Piano, harp, and violin
Babies passed from neck to knee
All the world is you and me.” -from All the World
The writing is beautiful,
and the illustrations are gorgeous.
This book is a keepsake. :)
