Weekend Recommendation #12

I hesitated to do another book by Mo Willems, but I can't help it!  The guy has quickly become my favorite author.  This one was rather unexpected to me.  City Dog, Country Frog is a beautiful book about friendship and loss and it would be a great book for a child moving away from friends or even those who have experienced loss because of death.  It is subtle and gentle and not overly sad.  The illustrations by Jon J Muth are excellent and a perfect match to both the tone of the story and the text itself (bravo to the art director who matched them up on this one!).  So, go check it out!
