* There weren't records for all of the titles when I wrote this blog. We're all still playing catch-up! Check back with our online catalog soon!
This is a blog I wrote before the COVID shutdown. I decided to wait and post it sometime in the future, once the public had access to our physical collection again. Well, curbside service starts today! So I pulled this blog out to post. And guess what I discovered? We have a copy of the ebook available on Overdrive! I waited needlessly to tell you about illustrator Pete Oswald's solo picture book debut! Read the interview on Let's Talk Picture Books before or after you dive into this near-wordless celebration of nature . . . and a day spent with dad.
In the cool and quiet early light of morning, a father and child wake up. Today they’re going on a hike. Follow the duo into the mountains as they witness the magic of the wilderness, overcome challenges, and play a small role in the survival of the forest. By the time they return home, they feel alive — and closer than ever — as they document their hike and take their place in family history. In detail-rich panels and textured panoramas, Pete Oswald perfectly paces this nearly wordless adventure, allowing readers to pause for subtle wonders and marvel at the views. A touching tribute to the bond between father and child, with resonant themes for Earth Day, Hike is a breath of fresh air.
