FEBRUARY 2019 FAMILY BOOK BOX

  • Good Night Coral Reef by Adam Gamble and Mark Jasper is the most recent book in the very popular Good Night Book series. The books are designed to celebrate special places and subjects in a way that young children can easily relate. This bright and colourful book is a wonderful introduction to hard and soft coral reefs and the creatures that live there including clown fish, octopus, sea turtles and starfish.
  • The Magic Boat by Kit Pearson & Katherine Farris (from Victoria, B.C.) is a lovely story about shyness, friendship and imagination. The beautiful illustrations are by Gabrielle Grimard from Waterville, Quebec. Ellie and her Nonna spend summer mornings at the beach. Nonna encourages shy Ellie to play with the other children and eventually she is invited by a girl named Piper to play on her magic boat. Although the old boat is half buried in the sand with peeling paint, Piper takes Ellie on imaginative adventures on the sea. When Piper has to return to the city, Ellie finds the magic of the boat has disappeared. But when a shy boy named Sasha arrives at the beach, Ellie gets up enough courage to ask him if he would like to see her magic boat. That’s all it takes for the magic boat to appear again. Kit is a best-selling children’s author who recently was named a member of the Order of Canada, one of our countries highest honours. Katherine was a researcher and non-fiction editor before becoming an artist. Gabrielle has been drawing since she was a young child but didn’t start illustrating children’s books until after the birth to her first child. She has won many awards and honours for her work.
