Today over at Kirkus, I’ve got a wee picture book round-up. That is here.

Last week, I wrote here about two books that reflect children living in poverty — Jairo Buitrago’s Walk With Me, illustrated by Rafael Yockteng (Groundwood, March 2017), and Piotr Parda’s Graduation Day (Ripple Grove, March 2017). I’m following up with some spreads from each book today.

Until Sunday …
