Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. It’s a great way to talk about a book from your TBR list and just kind of show it off. Instead of weekly, I do them monthly. Today I choose a picture book because I haven’t talked about one in a while even though that’s what I am currently writing! I read through them so fast I don’t always get to talk about them. This book, however, has been on my list for a while and I have yet to pick it up and it’s too new to be in a library. So here it is, my Goodreads pick of the month.
The Suitcase by Chris Naylor-Ballesteros
“At a time when over 65 million people are forcibly displaced around the world, this beautifully illustrated and wise, gentle tale of tolerance and kindness for fellow humans resonates deeply. I hope all parents share The Suitcase with their children.” – Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner
“A simple, powerful way to introduce the idea of kindness to strangers to young children” – Axel Scheffler, illustrator of The Gruffalo
Have you read this yet? What did you think about it? And what other new Picture Books are you looking forward to reading? I’d love to know.
