Three image books by Jessica Linn Evans
Three new picture books from small publishers, perfect for young readers (and listeners). All are illustrated by Jessica Linn Evans, but the authors are different.
Penguin sets sail from Jessica Linn Evans. Rainstorm Publishing, 2020.
Wordless books should invite young readers and storytellers to tell the story while taking some editorial additions into account. Penguin sets sail supplies. Young readers will be able to tell the surface story from the first reading, but they will undoubtedly notice more details on a second pass. Penguin sails, but the story is also about his dreams, his friends and their communication with each other. Evans & # 39; using panels and different perspectives adds a lot to the story. We recommend the Boardbook Edition because it can withstand repeated readings better! Recommended for children from 0 to 8 years.
Little Mouse finds a friend of Jeni Leidenfrost and illustrated by Jessica Lynn Evans. Jovial Press, 2018.
The little mouse is a big brother of several little sisters. He wished he had a friend other than these sisters. If he encounters a mushy green caterpillar, he immediately decides that the caterpillar is his new friend / pet. The caterpillar will inevitably follow the path of all the caterpillars and turn into one … well, you have to read it to find out. This large format picture book doesn't work as well on a digital platform. Cute illustrations, factual information mixed in with the story, and a sweet ending make a solid addition to a picture book library. Recommended for 4-8 years.
Waiting Through Winter by Jason Farley and illustrated by Jessica Linn Evans. Jovial Press, 2015.
Hibernation of the Bears is a popular storybook theme, but Evans' illustrations and Farley's poems offer a sweet novelty. The text is more poetic than most rhyming picture books, and Evan's lively, childish illustrations complement Farley's poems well. Children will enjoy hearing this read more than once. Recommended for children from 0 to 8 years.
