book review

Only You by Robin Cruise, illustrations by Margaret Chodos-Irvine

During this busy and hectic holiday season, kids and parents may need some quiet time just to be together.  This calming book is the perfect accompaniment for that special time.  Simple rhymes express the love that a parent has for a child and all that the child does, from morning to night.  The oversized illustrations were done using printmaking techniques, and show a variety of children and parents.  Simple lines and a mix of both subdued and bold colors, along with plenty of white space, create a combination that is both restful and arresting.  Be sure to check this one out when you need a little quiet parent/child interlude in your busy days.
