The Day You Begin
Written by Jacqueline Woodson and illustrated by Rafael Lopez
I was originally drawn to this book by the wistful eyes of the child on the cover. The illustrator and the author worked together to build a story that appeals to all ages. It's a message that is timely and encourages us to both share our story and listen to others as they tell us where they are in their journey. We just received three new copies of this book in the Media Center, so please come check it out! It is great for individual, quiet reading and for a group read aloud. If you like this author and illustrator, please come check out their other books!
