Oh my goodness! This chapter book is just beautiful!
Called A Nest for Celeste, by Henry Cole, I don't think I have ever seen a chapter books like this one; there are wonderful full page illustrations throughout the book, often with the text woven in to illustrations.
The book is a perfect chapter book for seven to eleven year olds, and imagines the story of John James Audubon's (yes! - that Audubon!) working on Birds of America in Louisiana in the 1820s, through the eyes of a mouse, named Celeste.
Beautifully told, with rich language, fantastic illustrations, this is a modern classic and a wonderful addition to your home library.
And, a couple of other things!
I am enjoying spreading Lovely Books over a few social media places.
Find me on Periscope (@tygerbrite), Instagram and Facebook. Because its fun to see photos and hear all about the lovely stacks of books, isn't it?!
