*Foundry Family Children's Library Selection*
It's amazing what you can see when you open your eyes. An entire alphabet of strikingly realistic pastel and watercolor illustrations finds poetic beauty hidden within cityscapes. A simple sawhorse makes a letter A, lampposts along the highway form a row of elegant, soaring Y's. A 1996 Caldecott Honor book with plenty of room for expanded thinking and curious looking.
About the Foundry Family Children's Library: Curated by Heather, who came to our Foundry Family by way of iconic Minneapolis children's bookshop Wild Rumpus, the Foundry Family Children's Collection are the kinds of books that illuminate wonder, that tell deep human truths with gentle grace and good humor, and that move humans of all sizes with their simple, honest loveliness. We like to think of them as "new heirlooms", beautiful, timeless tales suitable for telling again and again (and again and again and again).
