Really beautiful picture books

Some books I come across at the library make me stop because their illustrations are so beautiful. Sharing four of them here.

 

Book by David Miles

This picture book is precious because its all about the wonder of getting lost in a book. I love the soft, dreamy illustrations.

Little Houses by Helen Musselwhite

This is a colourful book full of gorgeous paper-cut models. It’s very simple ‘counting book’ but we spent ages taking in all the details on each page.

Pussy cat by Russell Punter and Dan Taylor

This is an Usborne books with an interesting twist at the end on a well-loved nursery rhyme.

It also brings the reader through modern London, and is a wonderful book to bring along, or read beforehand, if you’re planning a family trip there.

阿果《寻找》

很喜欢阿果叔叔的书,尤其是他的画。新加坡有他,因该引以为傲。

书的每一页都那么诗情画意。此书带着一丝忧,因为它是一个叙述‘寻找‘的书。读了之后,感触很多。在这个人生的道路上,我们不都在寻找吗?

image读到最终,结局是温馨的。可爱的主人翁与胖嘟嘟的企鹅发现他们真正寻找的,其实就在眼前。只要伸出手,就能掌握它。

最后一页的导读篇也写得非常美,能读这本书,不知为什么,让我感到特别欣慰。虽然寻找的过程带着自己的美,但我们也要时不时地停下来,问一问自己是佛已经不必再追寻了,因为幸福已在身边。
