Hi, this is Patrice Badami, with Acorn to tree children’s book review, and I wanted to share one of my favorite books with you. It’s by Lynn Plourde. And it’s called Wild Child. It’s illustrated by Greg Couch. And yes, it’s a wonderfully illustrated book. And I wanted to share it with you. It’s simply breathtaking. This book is, is it talks about how there’s a child. The child represents the four seasons and how each shows the different beautiful elements that occurred during that season in nature. It takes that into a wonderful, exciting journey for the parent trying to put the child to sleep during all four seasons, so it’s just a charming idea for a book. I wanted to read a little about it to you. Time for bed. Mother Earth said a song first I need to play in my head before bed. So Mother Earth gave her child a verse, but this wild child wanted a snack, PJs, and a kiss. Mother Earth gently gets her daughter ready for bed. And Greg Couch’s extraordinary illustrations take readers from the soft greens of late summer through the fiery orange of the fall sunset to the peaceful blues of early winter’s Eve. Wild children and their parents will revel in this scrumptious, loving tribute to the wonders of nature and the family. So cute. I remember reading this to my older daughter when she was in preschool; the children loved the illustrations and were very engaged. So see if you can find it once again Wild Child by Lynn Plourde. Illustrated by Greg Couch, just a cute, beautifully illustrated book
