Thank you to @ladybrink for sharing this masterpiece made by an adorable artist collective out on a camp adventure. Just like SUN, they used found objects to make something magical. Share and tag your found object art with (I will post one of my own too!) And check my stories to see how the magic got even more magical for these artists later that day...  .

First review of Sun (from Kirkus) below. Coming this June.  @hmhkids 
A boy named Sun has a close encounter with a fox. In this immensely appealing fantasy, the minimalist text takes a back seat to the boldly colorful illustrations. The central figure is Sun, a young boy who is introduced as a "soccer star." But this picture book is not about soccer—it's rather about Sun's awareness that "something was missing." Observing that his younger brother, Pablo, "looked happy" while "making art," Sun heads for the beach, recalling that "he used to make art too." Awaiting Sun are an unexpected encounter with a fox and a rekindling of his creativity, expressed in an explosion of collage-style montages. The spread in which the fox shows Sun how to make art is a fabulously messy composition, colorful scrawls and squiggles in the background recalling Pablo's exuberant experimentation on the walls even as Sun and the fox build sculptures out of found objects. Feeling "connected" at last, Sun notices that the day is drawing to a close and returns to an undefined "home" (sans parents), where he and Pablo explore their creativity together in a space that has the look of the outdoors but with those vigorous, unbridled scrawls and squiggles again on a blue-sky backdrop. The soccer-themed introduction feels superfluous, as the not-so-subtle message concerns the magic of art and nature. Both boys have dark brown skin and textured black hair. A visual treat for the young imagination. (Picture book. 4-8)

So exciting to receive copies of MOON in Korean with her new title, “Wondered What It Would Be Like Not To”  
_________

Repost from @amaresplayroom using @RepostRegramApp - Who is else has been counting down the days before the release of @michelleobama's new book? I got so excited that I went looking for some related kid's books (because grown ups can't have ALL of the fun ).

Here are some great books for kids of all ages to learn and get a little more insight about the life and experiences this iconic first lady and her time in the White House

I am so happy to say that MOON has been released in Korean with a new title, “Wondered What It Would Be Like Not To”

My favorite book from childhood. It might have been because I had a dachshund named Willie too, but i think it was how magical Ezra Keats made NYC look. I can blame him for my early obsession with moving to New York. It's also how my mom taught me the concept of sharing--you can't check it out at the library over and over because then other kids can't enjoy it. Thanks and thanks @juniperbooks for inviting us to share our favorite books.
