Okay, a very quick post about this new picture book because it’s beautiful.
Through Your Eyes by Ainsley Earhardt and illustrated by Ji-Hyuk Kim shows the story of a mother and daughter, and a valuable lesson learned. The lesson? Slow down, smell the roses, and appreciate with joy all of the things that the world has to offer. The story is about a child’s fascination and discovery of the world around her and about a mother who loves her daughter and loves her daughter’s view of life.
Through Your Eyes features simple, beautiful poetry and wonderful illustrations by Kim. Colour and vibrancy jump off the page and bring to life the story as much as the words do.
Please get a copy of this book (you can get it here) and read it with your daughters (and sons too). Recommended age range is 4-8 years.
