Eek! My Ink! by Raven Howell is a colorful, imaginative rhyming story that celebrates the brilliant view of our colorful world.
A variety of colorful emotions swirl throughout this beautifully illustrated story that captures the kindness of self-love and an appreciation of the colorful, diverse world around us. This youngster travels through the pages of golden yellow, emerald flashes, violet swirls, and black stripes discovering that each and every color brings a perfect shade of song it sings.
Anke Rappen’s stunning artwork accompanies Howell’s rhyming text, bringing the story to life and encouraging the reader to turn page after page to see what color, emotion, and aspects of nature emerge.
One of the loveliest stories I’ve read this year. Highly recommended!
When Hornsby loses his horn in a fight, he is no longer accepted by his herd. Struggling with a sense of belonging, he wanders off and winds up finding some new friends that teach him a valuable lesson.
Between the cute story and the delightful illustrations, there’s a lot to like about Rosie and Friends: One-of-A Kindness. It has a terrific message and even includes some discussion questions and an activity at the end. Kids will love this one and parents can use this as a way to discuss friendship, kindness and belonging with their young ones. The colorful illustrations by Taryn Cozzy will keep readers turning the pages. Definitely a fun read.
