The kids and I cannot get enough of these new picture books. All of them are delightful – both to read and look at.
1. Balloons Over Broadway: The True Story of the Puppeteer of Macy’s Parade by Melissa Sweet
This book is so much fun, both the true story and the interesting, mulit-media illustrations. I mean, what kid doesn’t love balloons, especially big ones that look like animals and characters.
2. Swirl by Swirl: Spirals in Nature by Joyce Sidman and illustrated by Beth Krommes
I love Beth Krommes’ art and this nonfiction picture book is fascinating. Short text, hidden facts and brilliant illustrations.
