The More We Get Together: Caroline Jayne Church

I've enjoyed Caroline Jayne Church's work since Here Comes Halloween. Her art and writing styles in The More We Get Together, and in her other work, are sweet and appealing without being saccharine. There's an economy of line and words here, yet the illustrations are expressive and the stories have heart.

"The more we get together, the happier we'll be."

At six spreads plus cover, this is a true board book with thick pages, which will stand up to many readings and handlings. Church is prolific, so be sure to check out the wealth of her other wonderful books that are available.
