We can make a difference in so many ways. Even small things can make a difference. And I have just the right picture book to review on this very special day:
Those opening lines beg you turn the page. What will you make, indeed? The story begins with one child who starts her day imagining and making things in her home out of things she finds. Then she takes her plans and “making-supplies” outside where she encounters a friend. From making towers to a snack to a plan to a friend, this story shows the many ways you can be a maker. Katey Howes’ rhythm and rhyme are spot on and lend well to this lovely story. Elizabet Vuković’s illustrations of a diverse cast of characters and all the things they make are whimsical, colorful, and have so much detail, I wanted to spend extra time on each page to let it all sink in (and then read it all over again to see what I missed). This book is brimming with creativity and shows what a big difference we can all make.
Read this review on Goodreads or Amazon.
Heather is a busy wife and mom of five rambunctious children and one lovable pup They all provide lots of distractions, but oodles of inspiration. Sometimes the pictures and ideas in her head turn into her own children's stories, but she always makes time to read other people's books. Sometimes she reviews them here.
