A page filled is a story.
A tire filled can ride.
A muddy hole filled with a tree,
Becomes a home for a squirrel family.
A fireplace filled is cozy.
A filled staff makes a tune.
My heart filled is a gigantic hug,
A hug designed just for you.
Lovely by Jess Hong is a lovely book. Hong pairs simple text with refreshingly different illustrations that show we are all lovely. My kids loved the picture of the fancy heels worn by someone with hairy legs. They loved the whole book, as did I. Thank you, Jess Hong!
This website has been up for about a week. I haven't been back since it went live, so it was a lovely surprise to see positive comments from family and friends, including my 12x12 people! You are keeping me accountable!
I thought of two more favorite picture books; Ooko by Esme Shapiro and After the Fall by Dan Santat.
