Thrilling Thursday

Gaston words by Kelly DiPucchio, pictures by Christian Robinson is a heart-warming story.  To be honest I didn't think much of the cover, I know, I know, don't judge. But when I read it, my heart melted and I love it. This may be the best line ever, "And many year later, when Gaston and Antoinette fell in love and had puppies of their own, they taught them to be whatever they wanted to be." Precious, brilliant, and perfect!
The illustrations were rendered in acrylic paint.  Kids will love this story.  We all feel like we don't fit in at some time, and kids will relate to this and embrace this book.  I'll share it with Preschool to 3rd grade.
