Synopsis

Say it! by Charlotte Zolotow

A very sweet, intimate portrayal of a mother-daughter relationship from two incredibly well-respected picture book creators. A very sweet, intimate portrayal of a mother-daughter relationship from two incredibly well-respected picture book creators. On a golden, windy autumn day, a mother and a daughter go walking among the swirling leaves. As they share little adventures together - seeing a kitten, noticing the leaves' colours, watching the setting sun colouring the clouds - the little girl keeps urging her mother to Say it. What it is isn't revealed until the last page of the book ...and, it turns out for both mother and daughter, it was being said all along.

Reviews

From the very first page, the illustrations in this book convey a sense of movement and direction; even the front pages have swirling, twirling leaves spread across them. [...] The whole book is very evocative and really does give you a feeling of being blown about on a windy walk, you can almost smell the freshness and feel the wind on your cheeks!
