Tonight as you sleep, a new day stirs.
Each kiss goodnight is a wish for tomorrow.
That you'll have wings enough to fly as high as you want.
I'm going to say something unusual and I don't say this lightly: I can already tell Tomorrow is Waiting by Kiley Frank, illustrated by Aaron Meshon, is going to be a favorite children's book in 2019. I love Tomorrow is Waiting so much it brings tears to my eyes (and it's not a sad book).
With absolutely gorgeous, eye-catching, bold illustrations, Tomorrow is Waiting talks about the many things a child has to look forward to and talks of the wishes a parent has for a child. Each spread shows a child exploring the world in some way -- snorkeling, walking through woods, leaping across river rocks, climbing over a wall, jumping into water. The book talks about courage, imagination, kindness, and hope, wishing these and other positive characteristics on the child.
Highly recommended - Colorful, uplifting, hopeful wishes. I can't think of a better way to put a child to bed at night than with such glorious hopes for the future. Here's an interior shot of one of the spreads so you can get a load of that eye-popping color:
I received a copy of Tomorrow is Waiting from Penguin Random House in return for an unbiased review. Many thanks!
And, now I must squeeze in a Fiona Friday pic because I was away from the computer, yesterday. Look what happens when you fold up a blanket and put it on your coffee table! It attracts cats! Granted, this is a super soft blanket. I might like to curl up on the coffee table, myself.
Also of note: A cat opened that cabinet door behind Isabel. Little rapscallions have been into everything, lately.
