Every week Jordan, my nine year-old daughter, and I visit the picture book section of the library. Okay, I am an adult, and she reads novels like the Narnia series now, and we tower over the toddlers next to us, but we won’t give up picture books. It’s not just because I went to F.I.T. for illustration and now write the stories; my love for picture books happened when I read them to my kids and shared their joy and smiles. If you don’t have kids, I suggest borrowing a child for a day and share the blessing of a great picture book like this one by Rob Scotton: Russell the Sheep
Rob Scotton’s picture book is delicious. His illustrations are adorable and creative with soft, beautiful colors. The text is simple, yet witty. I must have checked this book out from the library ten times. This is a perfect story for snuggling. A+ from me.
