THANK YOU! Cody Soroptimists.
It’s such a pleasure to catalog and process new children’s books. The artistry and imagination that the authors and illustrators create to entertain and educate young people is amazing. Everyone should be grateful that we still have books to open, read and appreciate their unplugged wondrous, vibrant colors and words.
For example, in a recent shipment, we received beautiful picture books which focus on various nature topics:
Hello Spring! by Shelley Rotner
A great harbinger of the season we all love. It includes nice photos of kids, flowers, animals, trees, everything that makes this time of year fun.
Over and Under the Pond by Kate Messner, illustrated by Christopher Silas Neal
What a great concept book that illustrates pond ecology both from on top of the water and under the surface. The muted colors and mixed media approach of the illustrations reveal a well-planned presentation. At the end of the book is a bibliography of books and websites for further reading.
Ribbit, written and illustrated by Jorey Hurley
It’s amazing what you can say with few words and big, bold, limited-palette illustrations. This book introduces toddlers to the wonderful world of frogs.
Robins! : How They Grow up, written and illustrated by Eileen Christelow
The robins, with assistance from this talented author, tell the story of their lives. Christelow uses images she produced digitally which emulate lovely, whimsical outlined watercolor and pen drawings. It’s just a wonderful book about the prolific bird species with interesting information at the end of the book.
Look and listen while the world says goodnight. Watch as creatures prowl the forest. Wonderful illustrations created digitally and with watercolors create a dimming atmosphere. This title is one for bedtime!
Caroline’s Comets by Emily Arnold
Comets are always fascinating, but the first woman to discover a comet is too. Her name was Caroline Herschel, and she became the “first professional woman scientist” back in the 18th century. This is a great biography for Ages 6-10. It includes a bibliography, glossary and timeline.
Fantastic Flowers, written and illustrated by Susan Stockdale
This is a fantastic book about some uniquely shaped flowers. The illustrations are beautiful and bold, reminiscent of Georgia O’Keeffe. Included at the end of the book are the corresponding photos with a bit of information and Latin and common names.
Grand Canyon by Jason Chin
Call this a marvelous nonfiction picture book about one of the most treasured natural places in the United States. It contains great illustrations and geological and ecological facts. Planning a trip there? This would be one for the whole family.
The Wolves Return : A New Beginning for Yellowstone National Park by Celia Godkin
This is a story about the positive side of reintroduction for Ages 6-9. The author claims that the wolves have created a better ecology for the landscape and the other species in the park. It is beautifully illustrated by the author with watercolor and colored pencil works.
The Park County Libraries will celebrate with:
