The design of this book is truly excellent, with fun, playful illustrations pared with collage elements that make the story pop in a way the writing by itself would fail to do. In fact, normally I would take off a star for the writing being good, but not great, but the story is so interesting and the illustrations are dynamic.

My kids love watching the parade, so it was fun to learn about how they came to be. Might be a little long for littles' attention span if they aren't into the parade.

I love learning something from a picture book. This is the story of how we got the Macy's Day Parade. It started with a young boy who loved puppets and making things move. Tony Sang worked with Marionettes for years. Mr. Macy wanted to create a window display and hired Tony. Then he decided to create a parade for his employees and Mr. Sang helped with that. You will need to read the book to see how a simple window display evolved into the Macy's Day Parade we have today. I loved this book.

What an amazing biography! The book chronicles E.B. White's life and the illustrations and format just make the information so engaging and interesting for the reader. I love that the author included quotes from E.B. White and photographs of him, along with illustrations. I also love that she took some actual photographs and completed the page illustration by finishing the picture around the actual photo, so creative! As a long time fan of Charlotte's Web, I also loved the whole chapter about the creation of the book, including details on how the illustrations came to be. The author includes some of E.B. White's drafts of the book with his edits. All around fantastic book.… (mais)
