It's been quite a while since I last did Perfect Picture Book Friday. I was starting to miss my fellow bloggers over at the Susanna Hill community so I've come back. Here is my pick of the week.
Title: My Love for You is the Sun
Written by: Julie Hedlund
Illustrated by: Susan Eaddy
Suitable for ages: 3-7
My love for you is the sun.
Rising in your tender heart
It shines on you when we're apart.
Brief Synopsis: This is a lovely rhyming "I love you" kind of book. Perfect for reading to kids before bedtime.
Why I like this book: There is a natural rhythm to this book that makes it a joy to read aloud. The clay made illustrations by Susan Eaddy are gorgeous!
A quick side not here. The illustrator, Susan Eaddy, is the illustrator coordinator of the Midsouth SCBWI group. She has given me a great deal of advice and encouragement throughout my journey as an illustrator. She is a lovely human being.
