Lenny & Lucy by Philip & Erin Stead

by Kris L | Oct 20, 2015
Picture books!  What's not to love?  Storytelling via an interplay of words and art -- picture books are a unique medium that capture the imagination of readers of all ages. 

One of my personal favorites this year is Lenny & Lucy, written and illustrated by the Caldecott-award-winning team of Philip and Erin Stead.  They have created a gentle story about Peter and his dog, Harold, who move to a new home, smack in the middle of a deep, dark woods.  The illustrations bring to life how big and scary moving to a new house can be for a child, but also how warm and sweet it can be to settle in and make new friends.  You really have to see this book -- I truly believe you will want to read it over and over!
