by Jory John and Pete Oswald
I can identify with Grape. When life doesn’t go exactly as planned or I don’t think I”m getting the attention I deserve , , I DO take it persnallly and hold grudge after grudge after grudge. Because, after all, it is all about me.
But, just like Grape, I have come to realize that by being honest and listening I will feel less sour and my face will become “less squishy”.
A wonderful story about patience and gratitude told using relatable prose and colourful humorous pictures.
If you are looking for great picture books for the littles in your life these two would be the best Christmas presents:
Lou by Breanna Carzoo
Lou is a story about a fire hydrant who just knows in his heart of hearts that he is meant for something greater than being, well being a “loo” for the dogs in the neighbourhood. One day a building catches fire and Lou finally realizes his true purpose. The story is humorous and the artwork is simple and fabulous.
Lizzy and the Cloud by the Fan Brothers
Lizzy and the Cloud is a story of a young girl who goes to the park to buy a pet cloud that she decides to name Milo. Now Milo comes with a list of instructions, and Lizzy is sure to follow each one as best as she can so Milo can be well taken care of. Soon, however, Milo becomes too big for her bedroom, and he begins to rumble and grumble forcing Lizzy to make some pretty big decisions about what to do with her unusual pet. The story is charming and the artwork is so beautiful you will have to revisit each page to immerse yourself in the whimsical world created.
