Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that I am eagerly anticipating.
This weeks pick is:
"In the beginning there is light and two wide-eyed figures standing near the foot of your bed and the sound of their voices is love...A cab driver plays love softly on his radiowhile you bounce in back with the bumps of the cityand everything smells new, and it smells like life."
In this heartfelt celebration of love, Newbery Medal-winning author Matt de la Pena and bestselling illustrator Loren Long depict the many ways we experience this universal bond, which carries us from the day we are born throughout the years of our childhood and beyond. With a lyrical text that's soothing and inspiring, this tender tale is a needed comfort and a new classic that will resonate with readers of every age.
