Some Questions about Trees by Toni Yuly

This picture book is full of whimsical questions from a child’s perspective about the emotional lives of trees. The minimalist illustration is done in a mixture of simple line drawing and collage that reminds me of Eric Carle! With each turn of the page, we get to see the child's wonder as they admire their world, surrounded by different kinds of trees and small forest creatures. This book is perfect for your inquisitive and thoughtful child. —MJ

The Great Zapfino Written by Mac Barnett

Marla Frazee (illustrator of Everywhere Babies and so many other Bookshop favorites) teams up with Mac Barnett (children’s book writer extraordinaire and my all-time favorite) in this sparsely worded and immaculately drawn picture book. The “impossible feat of derring-do” premise is all Mac; the inviting and highly detailed pencil illustrations are all Marla. What a perfect pair to take us on this journey of self discovery, with its suprising(ly satisfying) ending! —Michelle
