Spring is just around the corner, but here in Seattle we know it’ll be awhile yet before outdoor-activity weather begins in earnest. Here are some outdoorsy offerings from Little Bigfoot and Sasquatch Books to whet your appetite for getting back out in nature—as well as a cookbook to get you dreaming of summer!
2/07: My Wilderness
In 1918 painter Rockwell Kent took his nine-year-old son to spend a winter on Alaska’s Fox Island. In My Wilderness, Claudia McGehee recounts this vivid nonfiction tale from Rocky’s point of view. Colorful scratchboard-style illustrations echo the rugged subject matter with whimsy while showcasing the wonder of Alaska from a young boy’s imaginative point of view. It’s now out in paperback for the first time.
“A tale to treasure again and again as either a storytime read-aloud or an independent read.”
—School Library Journal (starred review)
2/21: If I Were a Whale
Your toddler will love to learn about whales swimming in the deep blue sea in this beautifully illustrated board book that shares simple whale facts in an imaginative way.
3/14: An Avocado a Day
Go beyond guacamole! Research shows that adding an avocado a day to your diet helps improve your overall health, and this cookbook will show you how to enjoy avocados in over 70 delicious and different ways.
