Books All Shapes and Sizes
We also finished The Secret Garden. We have enjoyed reading this book together but it did not seem to captivate Froggy the way More All of a Kind Family did. Froggy enjoyed it in the moment but did not talk about it or bring it into her play the way she did with Mama's girls or the fairies.
In second place is When the Root Children Wake Up. Audrey Wood and Ned Bittender recreate the classic German tale. Some reviews are not kind to the book but we loved it. The oil paintings have a Thomas Kinkade style which help convey the fantastical nature of the story. I like that the words are in sidebar keeping the paintings intake. The prose is lyrical and calls to the listener as much as the root children.
