I received copies of both of these books to help facilitate my review.
I have two more books from Disney Hyperion to introduce you to:
A group of woodland creatures set up camp in an empty human house in this rollicking picturebook by up-and-coming talent Julie Falatko.
When the humans head out to go camping, the animals settle in for a relaxing holiday of their own! Teen bear takes over the bathroom with her curling iron, the beavers prepare their fanciest recipes, and the deer kick up their feet for a dance party. What starts as a little unwinding soon escalates to a big mess, just in time for everyone to head home. . . . Julie Falatko and Ruth Chan’s quirky humors shine in this hilarious take on family trips that will have kids wondering what exactly goes on back at home when they’re on vacation.
As a family grows, so does its capacity for love, for dreams, and for hope. Two lions celebrate their grandchild and express all the ways this new life has expanded their world, and the hope they hold for his future. A companion to Matthew Cordell’s stunning Wish and Dream, this picturebook picks up with a new animal family celebrating their little one.
My take: We loved The Great Indoors because of the author’s imagination on how animals would take a week long vacation by staying in a house. The kids laughed at the animals’ antics and we all agreed there is no place like home.
Hope was a very sweet book for a grandparent to give their grandchild. A mixture of the past and present and hope for the future.
