Books do not Have Wings by Brynne Barnes - ESSENTIAL

Barnes, Brynne Books do not Have Wings, illustrated by Rogerio Coelho.  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.
