Blue by Laura Vaccaro Seeger
Sometimes it’s not simply that a picture that is worth a thousand words. Blue conveys a wealth of emotion with hues of a single color. Laura Vaccaro Seeger's signature painting style captures the essence of the relationship between a boy and his dog primarily with a variety of blues.
Ingenious cut-outs lead the reader to explore vignettes of the twosome’s shared experiences: exploring outdoors, frolicking at the beach, playing tug-of-war. From infancy, the bond between these companions remains constant through the seasons of their lives: midnight blue, silly blue, stormy blue, chilly blue. Rhymes are subtle and flow naturally, never feeling forced or contrived.
Tender moments. Poignant memories. A heart full of love.
It is impossible for me to read this book without tears.
Thank you Laura for this treasure.
