A couple of weeks ago I received a copy of the Canadian Children's Book Centre's publication, "Best Books for Kids and Teens 2012." I was delighted (and relieved!) to see that Reaching was included in the picture books section. Here's the review:
Told in gentle rhyming verse, this is the story of a baby and his family as they laugh, play and celebrate being together. Join baby as he cuddles with his mom, dad and sister, dances with his grandma, plays horsey with his grandpa and reads his favourite book with Great-gran. Endearing watercolour illustrations will delight both young and old.
Nice, isn't it?
All the best,
