PITTMAN PICKS

Thank You, Omu!

 

Author/Illustrator: Oge Mora

Genre: Picture Book

Publisher: Little, Brown and Company

Publication Year: 2018

 

When Omu makes a pot of red stew for her dinner, the delicious smell reaches other people in her neighborhood who come by to get some for themselves!  But when Omu is finally ready to eat, there's no more stew!  Omu is sad, of course, but that's until she hears some knocking at her door…

 

Thank You, Omu! is a story about sharing, and Omu's generosity towards her neighbors is more than rewarded by the end of the book.  Oge Mora's cut-paper artwork adds flavor to the book (pun-intended!), and once you've finished reading, you might be finding recipes and making your own stew to savor with family and friends!

Gator Dad

Author/Illustrator: Brian Lies

Genre: Picture Book

Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Publication Year: 2016

 

Brian Lies is one of the best author/illustrators in children's literature, and if you haven't read any of his books, you can begin with this one!  Gator Dad follows a father and his three children as they "squeeze the day" for all the fun they can have together.  Lies has a great talent for capturing emotions in the facial expressions of his characters, and you'll smile as you watch the gator father spend time with his children and bring them joy.  This will NOT be my only pick by Brian Lies!
