Every now and then we encounter a new children's book or series that we’re so excited about we want to broadcast it from the rooftop. We've created the Tattered Cover Picture Book of the Month (formerly called Kids' V.I.B.) to highlight real stand-outs among the many delightful and meaningful new editions for young readers.
Our latest selection is:
Lawrence in the Fall by Matthew Farin, illustrated by Doug Salati
Lawrence is starting school, and each student is asked to bring in a collection. But Lawrence doesn’t collect anything! Luckily, his understanding Papa tells him, “There is no better place to find what you need than the woods,” and Lawrence goes exploring. An ode to the changing colors of fall, and a book about being brave in new situations, this is an excellent autumnal read. —Bethany Strout, Director of Buying
