Best Picture Books of 2015
Water is Water by Miranda Paul, ill. Jason Chin (Macmillan)
Creative nonfiction at its best. Chin has a confident yet subtle style that brings to mind a modern day Norman Rockwell. Paired with Paul’s rhythmic text, this exploration of the water cycle will not only teach today’s children, but will also serve as a useful refresher for older readers as well.
Mianda’s Water is Water also made the Minnesota Public Radio’s list of best children’s books to give this year:
Miranda’s award-winning non-fiction picture book One Plastic Bag debuted in February of this year.
