Just the sweetest little polka-dotted guy, that Elliot! Such a beautiful way to portray a child's view of the world.
Little Elliot, Big City by Mike Curato
"A new favorite picture book! Wonderful illustrations and a heart-warming story of an elephant who is all alone in the big city, but when he helps out someone even smaller than himself, he finds help in return...and a new friend. And there are cupc..." Read more of this review »

Little Elliot, Big City by Mike Curato

My favorite thing about Philip Stead's work? The way a story can meander in unexpected directions. (Also, his love of birds.) And in this one: those three retro knitting sisters!!

Rebecca Stead
“Mom says each of us has a veil between ourselves and the rest of the world, like a bride wears on her wedding day, except this kind of veil is invisible. We walk around happily with these invisible veils hanging down over our faces. The world is kind of blurry, and we like it that way. But sometimes our veils are pushed away for a few moments, like there's a wind blowing it from our faces. And when the veil lifts, we can see the world as it really is, just for those few seconds before it settles down again. We see all the beauty, and cruelty, and sadness, and love. But mostly we are happy not to. Some people learn to lift the veil themselves. Then they don't have to depend on the wind anymore.”
Rebecca Stead, When You Reach Me

John Green
“You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world...but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Virginia Woolf
“I will not be "famous," "great." I will go on adventuring, changing, opening my mind and my eyes, refusing to be stamped and stereotyped. The thing is to free one's self: to let it find its dimensions, not be impeded.”
Virginia Woolf, A Writer's Diary

John Green
“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Mary Oliver
“Instructions for living a life.
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.”
Mary Oliver
