Day 15: a book that makes me cry. #bookaday #mylittlebookcase This amazing book by Charlotte Moundlic is incredibly touching, without a shred of schmaltz. When a little boy loses his mother, he keeps her memory alive by picking at a scab on his knee until it scars. The illos are striking, the text is heartbreaking. Having lost my own mother too soon, I can't even tell you how it resonated with me. Read with tissues. #books #childrensbooks #picturebooks #grief #beauty @jackie_mylittlebookcase
