picture books

Here are two wildly different picture books. Each one will be popular with its own crowd of followers.






Tomie dePaola's LET THE WHOLE EARTH SING PRAISE (Putnam 2011) has, of course, its roots in the Bible. dePaola uses folk art to illustrate these simple yet eloquent verses. <203>

MARS NEEDS MOMS by Berkeley Breathed (Philomel 2011), oh the other hand is a tie in to the new movie. Illustrations here are bright and bold and more realistic. <204>
