Colon, Raul Draw! PICTURE BOOK. Simon and Shuster Books for Young Readers. 2014. $17.99.
This magical book that will takes the reader on a journey as the world transforms from a young artist’s bedroom to the wilds of Africa. It is told entirely through pictures. This book will appeal to children who are just learning to read as the beauty of the artwork tells the story. The animals in the book add so much wonder as the author portrays their majesty. I love this book and would highly recommend it to anyone who loves the miracle of escaping to another world while never even leaving your bedroom.
