The Lovereading4Kids comment

Longlisted for the inaugural Klaus Flugge Prize, an important new illustration prize for children's books. March 2015 Debut of the Month Inspired by a Lenape Native American myth, this beautiful debut picture book shows how courage and kindness are what really matter.

Synopsis

The Crow's Tale by Naomi Howarth

In the dark depths of winter, snow is falling and the animals are freezing and famished. Brave Crow sets out on a dangerous journey to find the Sun, and beg for warmth. Will Crow succeed, and what will happen to his colourful rainbow feathers?

Reviews

"The picture book's forte is the outstanding multimedia illustrations that combine lithography and watercolors. Their pastel palette really brings home the warmth of the story she tells and underscores its message: that bravery and kindness are beautiful things in themselves. A heartfelt debut." Kirkus Reviews

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
