JULY 2018 FAMILY BOOK BOX

  • Mama, Is It Summer Yet? by Nikki McClure from Olympia, Washington. A young boy anxiously waiting for summer continually asks his mother “Is it summer yet?” She answers by telling him about all the things that are changing from spring to summer. Like the soft ground waiting for seeds to sprout and the blossoming trees ready to produce apples. Nikki’s charming art is cut from black paper with an X-acto knife. She says, “Everything is connected. It is all one piece of paper, yet now it holds a story.” In addition to writing and illustrating many beautiful children’s books, Nikki produces an annual calendar. She also collaborates with her husband Jay T. Scott, a fine woodworker, creating lamps and furniture.
  • Draw Together by Minh Le and illustrated by Dan Santat. A young boy has great difficulty communicating with his Thai grandfather until he brings out his drawing supplies. His grandfather loves to draw as well and brings out his art supplies. They start creating great super heroes from their own generation and together they defeat a giant dragon. Brilliantly told and illustrated, partly as a wordless graphic novel which demonstrates just how difficult it is for the two to communicate. They end up seeing each other in a completely different light, developing a wonderful bond. Both Minh and Dan have said this book was an emotional journey that connected them with their roots and grandparents. This is Minh’s second book. He is a book reviewer, blogger and early childhood policy writer. Dan has created over 60 books and won the prestigious Caldecott Medal.
