Ollie and Claire by Tiffany Strelitz Haber and illustrated by Matthew Cordell is one of my favorite new books. When I read it for the first time I thought it would make a perfect story time book. I love how they do everything together ---the two of them doing yoga is my favorite spread. The illustrations are wonderful and they match the story perfectly. This is a great book about friendship that is a must have on any child's bookshelf.
I was also so happy that the bookstore I now work in (Well Read New & Used Books in Hawthorne, NJ) was able to get Ms Haber to come for a story time and signing. She had great success with her first book:
The Monster Who Lost His Mean---another really cute book to read aloud.
As I stated above: Tiffany Strelitz Haber will be at Well Read New & Used Books this Saturday May 18th from 2-3PM. I would love to have a big crowd to greet her. Hope to see you there!!!!!
