Book A Day Summer Challenge. Book #2 and #3.
I am trying to read a book a day this summer and today is Day #3 of summer for me. So I want to share with you the two books I have finished.
The Arrival by Shaun Tan
This is a wordless book and the artwork in it, is extraordinary. It is beautiful, heartfelt and you will experience the foreign world that every immigrant experiences in a new place for the first time. I loved it.
The Raft by Jim LaMarche
The Raft is a beautiful children's book about a boy who spends the summer with his grandma. She lives along a river and he finds a raft and connections to nature and his grandmother. It is such a beautiful story and it totally reminds me of my experience growing up and spending summers with my grandparents in Wisconsin. Any child would love this book. In fact, I think I love it more than my children ever could.
