Over at Kirkus today, I’ve got two brand-new picture books, beautiful stories about making it through the rain in more ways than one.

That is here.

Last week, I wrote here about the deep thoughts of Charise Mericle Harper’s The Good for Nothing Button! (Disney, May 2017) and Susan Hood’s Double Take! A New Look at Opposites (Candlewick), illustrated by Jay Fleck and coming to shelves in June.

I’m following up with some art from each book today.

Enjoy!
