It’s STILL Picture Book Month.
To continue celebrating, here’s a quick review of the excellent Ann Marie Stephens’s SCUBA DOG, illustrated beautifully by Jess Golden. Get a copy for yourself and/or the kids in your life, and keep an eye out for Stephens’s upcoming CY MAKES A FRIEND.
Warm, whimsical, and wise, SCUBA DOG is a must-have for your children’s book collection. Scuba Dog’s story will encourage kids to pursue their curiosities and interests, explore their creativity, and show them that distances between individuals can always be bridged, even if it sometimes requires a little ingenuity and hard work. Also, fair warning: SCUBA DOG does not come with an oxygen tank, scuba mask, or snorkel, but it may very well get readers asking for them.
