PICTURE BOOK. Sleeping Bear Press, 2016. $17.
Is a book just a book? Brynne Barnes would beg to differ.
While the illustrations take center stage – they are magical flights of fancy that beg to be framed to hang for constant enjoyment – don’t sell the text short. They are meant to be read out loud with inflection and spirit – then they come alive and shine as much as the pictures. Grab this one for a faithful read aloud, whether group story time or as a cuddle before bed. I can’t wait to gift this to new mothers and grandchildren.
