Good morning friends!! We have tons of snow and it is officially feeling like Christmas in WA.
What. A. Week!! I’m breathing and spending morning naptime with a cup of coffee and Christmas lights. (...and maaaybe some of the cookies that were supposed to make it to a party last night, but weather happened.)
It feels so good to slow down before what’s guaranteed to be a wild week! What are you doing this weekend to recharge before the final push?!
Illustrator Coralie Bickford-Smith has crafted a modern classic, an exquisitely drawn and written fable: "The Fox and the Star". Fox finds the world beyond his den to be intimidating. With the help of his only friend Star's light he explores a patch of forest. Star is shown as a silent but faithful companion. One night though star's light goes out and Fox retreats into his den and into fear. Some uninvited beetles provide a rejuvenating meal and Fox decides to wander further than he ever has been before in search of Star. Quite magically his quest is aided by the nature around him. Ultimately his courage is rewarded by a sky full of stars and the knowledge that his friend is not lost but somewhere in the great expanse above the trees. And knowing that is comfort enough for further journeys. I recommend this book for all ages as it can be comprehended on different levels. Older children can explore the tale's allegorical nature and themes like bravery, loss, and resiliency. The artwork is done mostly in black, white, and orange; the limited color scheme only enhances the visual and emotional impact. #thefoxandthestar#bookrec#kidlit#kidlitart#bookamiga#teachersofig#childrensbookart#teacher#bookagram#bookstagram
