"MY FIRST COLORS: It's hard to decide which is more charming, the text or illustrations. Ms. Whitman's talents are apparent in both. The clear, bright colors are sure to appeal to young children, while the fine nuances of texture will charm adults. The lilting verses introduce children to color in their environment, using some rather unusual examples. This is far from an ordinary read-aloud book about color. Families are likely to treasure it for years." - A reader

Now it is Morning
Children's Book-of-the-Month Club Dual Selection

by Candace Whitman

Farrar, Straus, Giroux

 

What do children do in the morning? Some bring in the eggs, some rush to get ready for school, others wait to go to the park with the sitter.  Farm, town, and city routines are warmly described in this concept book about the first hour of the day.  Visually, each vignette is bathed on soft light, and the words convey all the particulars of sights, sounds, and events which children can locate themselves.

Sounds of a Summer Night
Written by May Garelick
Illustrated by Candace Whitman
Mondo Publishing

 

As a young boy waits to fall asleep in those moments between daylight and darkness, he is lulled by the sounds of a warm summer night. Birds cheep. Leaves rustle in the breeze.  And when night comes, he is surrounded by more sounds.  Bullfrogs drum. Crickets sing. Katydids call. So many things to hear and dream about..
