25 Days – Book 7: Can I Touch Your Hair?

Today’s book is one of the most powerful picture books of the year for me. A book of poems, written from the perspective of two classmates – a white girl and a black boy.  This book is required reading in my opinion. It will make you uncomfortable, inspire you, make you laugh, and stay with you. Take a look at Can I Touch Your Hair? Poems of Race, Mistakes, and Friendship by Irene Latham & Charles Waters, illustrated by Sean Qualls & Selina Alko, 2018.

25 Days – Book 4: Look

What a fantastically fun book I have to share today! I’ve been waiting for this one to come out. It finally arrived and I am smitten. A story about a brother and sister’s day, including a trip to the zoo. The best part? The whole book is composed of words that contain the letter pair “oo!” Come ooh and aah with me over this book, but mostly ooh as is most appropriate. Check out Look by Fiona Woodcock, 2018.

But I did not see it until recently and I just love it so much, I have to include it as a beautiful gift-giving option! Today’s book is Round by Joyce Sidman, illustrated by Taeeun Yoo, 2017.

25 Days – Day 1: I Walk With Vanessa

This is quite possibly my favorite new book from this year. (But who can ever choose ONE favorite picture book.) As the subtitle so aptly puts it, “A story about a simple act of kindness,” this beautiful book is wordless, simple, thoughtful, and a much-needed gift for everyone. I Walk With Vanessa by Kerascoët, 2018.
