“Rapunzel”, by Bethan Woollvin is a cut above. Prepare for a delightful and unconventional heroine. Much like her first picture book, “Little Red”, Woollvin’s next installation is a joyful romp. Be sure to look under the dust jacket for a fun surprise.

Look for pigeon cameos, and read back to back if you want to see the play between the two books.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 “In Your Hands” by Carole Boston Weatherford and illustrated by Brian Pinkney, is not only timely but beautifully rendered. It encompasses what we all hope for our children, brothers and sisters as they set out into the world. While God and prayer are central here, this title resonates on a truly humanitarian level.Related image
