One of Carter’s all time favourite books is Subway by Christoph Niemann. It was brought back as a gift from New York by his Auntie Sheila when he was about four months old and has been a daily read ever since.  As you can see by the wear and tears, this book has received a lot of “love”.

Christoph Niemann is an illustrator, an author, and a father. His work has appeared on the covers of The New Yorker,  Newsweek, Wired, and The New York Times Book Review. In this playful love letter to public transportation, readers follow along as a father and his two children navigate New York City’s subterranean metro system. Illustrated in a  homage to typical public signage and classic transit maps, Subway appels to native New Yorkers and visitors alike.  So spend some time with Niemann and get lost exploring the subway routs of an amazing city.

Wisteria hung low, drifting in and out of shadows.
Lavender wisps flickering through warm breezes,
the village was alive and blossoming.
Cascading shades of green trickled over stonewalls,
under wrought iron gates and into the distant horizon.

The children emerged, slowly at first,
feet tapping along worn cobblestone streets.
Muffled sounds quickly became loud drums
marching through pale city scenes.
Tapping turned to twirls and soon they were emerged in dancing.

Their golden colored hair, dusted in sunlight,
floated above shoulders and tall brick barriers.
Laugher wrapped around in circles, endless,
like a freshly bound bouquet of flowers.

They were young and free,
full of sweet wanderlust and dreams.
Youth encompassed them,
and the world was in their hands.

Storykins // The Awesome Book of Love

We are in love with The Awesome Book of Love, the third addition to Dallas Clayton’s “The Awesome Book” series.  His illustrations and words always give kids so much empowerment and confidence.  Dallas Clayton has a way of taking everyday challenges like “differences” , and “goodbyes” and celebrating it in a way kids understand with so much positive light.

“If I was a dinosaur, and you were a jet there’s a chance, a good chance that we’d never have met…you’re you and I’m me and we’re together as together can be…It’s about iving life with such strength and emotion and knowing that waves are just part of the ocean…I LOVE YOU! I LOVE YOU! In so many ways over thousands of year over million of days….”

You can also always count on Dallas Clayton’s instagram and Tumblr to make you smile.
