Places to Be (Hardcover)

From the award-winning, bestselling Mac Barnett and Renata Liwska comes a classic and luminous book perfect for fans of The Quiet Book by Deborah Underwood and Waiting by Kevin Henkes.

Sometimes the best children’s books give you more feelings than words when you turn the pages with your child, and Places to Be, is a perfect example.  It’s a simple story about two bear siblings that spend their day together.  They have lots of places to go and many things to do.  As a parent, this reminds me of many weekend days that my two girls spend together and it makes me happy to read and see the lovely pictures.

We have so many places to be!

Places to be loud

and lovely

and scared

and jubilant.

This adorable children’s book is reminiscent of the classics that celebrates all of our wide-ranging emotions.  Wonderful and light book to read before bed or when you have some quiet time you are spending with your child.  Love!
