Marvelous Monday

Brimsby's Hats by Andrew Prahin is so delightful.  I love the simplicity of the story and the art.  A friendship story and finding new friends, it hits rather poignantly.  I love the Adobe illustrations done with limited palette from spread to spread.  It has a good variety of white space and full page color.  The loneliness is palatable. This title is quite inventive and unique.  I can't wait to share it with parents, teachers, and children.
I think I'll use this with first and second graders.  Emotionally, I think the primary students will appreciate this story more than preschool or Kindergarten.
