Sample text

The assistants said they would buy a hammer when the need suggested it, but Chicago countered that already having a hammer suggests the need to do something with it. Books work the same way. It’s great when a kid fired with enthusiasm for a hobby or a celebrity or an extinct species can read a book that abets and stokes his or her interest. But it’s better still to have the potential afforded by reading already in place, both in the reader’s fluency and in the shape of lots of things to read.

That circle, so private and intimate, is a place apart from the demands and stresses of daily life, a sanctuary in and from which the child can explore the many worlds offered in picture books. Despite all of our society’s technological advances, it still just takes one child, one book, and one reader to create this unique space, to work this everyday magic. Once established, of course, the space grows elastic and expands as the child grows. It stretches to the length and shape of a parent in an armchair reading to a five-year-old in bed, an audiobook entertaining a family on a road trip, a teacher standing before a hushed, enthralled classroom.

Smaller volumes may have a particular focus. In To Market! , Peter Spier sets a score of rhymes in the early nineteenth-century market town of New Castle, Delaware. Leonard S. Marcus and Amy Schwartz celebrate the foolish, the disappointed, and various miscreants in a merry take on Mother Goose’s Little Misfortunes. Robert Sabuda’s virtuoso pop-up, The Movable Mother Goose, features arresting graphic design as well as extraordinary paper engineering. With We Are All in the Dumps with Jack and Guy, Maurice Sendak turns two hitherto unrelated rhymes into a fantasy on urban poverty, social responsibility, and compassion.
