Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1-This sweet list of "gifts" or wishes from parent to child is enhanced by lovely illustrations and spare text. There is really no story here. It is a poetic list: "The gift of quiet.../ And the gift of loud.../ Your hand in my hand/ Out in a crowd." The sentiment is genuine, though verging on saccharine, and the meter and rhyme mostly flow well. It sells appreciating the moment, being oneself, feeling safe, and caring about the world. Acrylic, gouache, and colored pencil illustrations are lovely, depicting a multicultural cast of children and their families reading, drawing, riding a train, playing outside, and visible through apartment windows. They are detailed and varied, from a close-up of two hands, to crisp items on a white background, to double-page scenes. There is a lovely bit of continuity, with a father giving his daughter a blue marble with the words "I'll give you this world like a lucky blue stone," and a later reference to the "blue stone" with a depiction of the earth in space. The nature images are particularly arresting, including a page that is full of butterflies. V­ERDICT While the text here will likely appeal more to parents than children, the sentiment is a worthy one to share, and the lovely illustrations will keep the children engaged. Add where Martin's other books are in demand.-Amy Lilien-Harper, Wilton Lib., CTα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Emily Winfield Martin makes paintings, books and other things. When she was small, she spent every moment drawing, reading, dressing rabbits in fancy clothes, and having many peculiar daydreams. When she grew up, she began to illustrate those daydreams and she created a cottage industry called The Black Apple, which sells all manner of her art and etceteras.

She works in a tiny nook of a studio filled with old children's books, wind-up toys, and stacks of fabric. She lives in Portland, Or.
