What would you do if you woke up one morning without one of your legs? For Frank the Seven-Legged Spider the answer is search, search, and search! Is a spider really a spider if he only has seven legs? Can he still spin a web and pull pranks on unsuspecting humans? All will be revealed in this charming, heart-warming tale from author and illustrator Michaele Razi.
9/26: The Art of Flora Forager
For Bridget Beth Collins, the author and artist behind The Art of Flora Forager, tending one’s garden isn’t all watering cans and spades—it’s about creating something beautiful out of foraged items others might walk right past. Her love for creating beautiful works of art shines through on every page of her new book as surfers, kites, and butterflies come to life, crafted from scraps of nature found by Collins. Each piece is accompanied by a poignant caption that serves to elevate the romantic, whimsical appeal of Collins’s artwork.
9/26: Make Yourself at Home
When it comes to her philosophy on designing a space, for Moorea Seal, it’s less about decorating and more about discovering the things that bring you joy and make you feel rooted in your abode. “When we don’t take time to get to know ourselves and invest in our inner worlds, we can often lose track of who we are, what brings us joy, and what makes us feel unique and valuable,” she says in the introduction from her latest book, Make Yourself at Home. Seal inspires readers through the personal essays in her book, giving them the encouragement to look within themselves and find what is truly important to them.
