Lost and Found and Up and Down
Up and Down (2010)
I discovered one of these books at my friend Brandy's house a few weeks before Christmas. I was instantly captivated by Jeffers's illustrations--charming! The storylines are just as good. These books make wonderful library check outs and potential gifts/books-to-own.
They chronicle the developing friendship between a boy and a penguin. Illustrations and text are simple and direct--yet full of depth. Stories are appropriate for young children, but older children will enjoy them as well.
