PuddleBook - 2019
A surprising, universal, and gorgeously illustrated story about self-acceptance, love, friendship, and the joy of embracing different perspectives, this beautiful picture book by acclaimed author Richard Jackson and two-time Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka presents a puddle with a distinct point of view.
Puddle sits despondently in the playground, observing the world around her as she is dimpled by rain, splashed by shoes, piddled on by a poodle, bounced by a basketball, and stirred up by an inquisitive seagull. But when the sun makes a sudden appearance, Puddle meets an admiring new friend who lifts her spirits and makes her feel loved.
Richard Jackson's playful text shines with rhythm, repetition, and surprising turns of phrase, and Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka's luminous paintings achieve the impossible--oh, sweet Puddle!
A memorable story of friendship, love, and changing your point of view.
