“Today we keep our eyes open for tiny, perfect things.”

A book that revels in the small everyday wonders and treasures of life, the ones that we notice most when we’re children — “a spider’s web that caught the light,” “a flower growing through a sidewalk crack,” our shadows “holding hands” in the late, late afternoon sun.  The pale bright moon and cold air that signal that it’s time to head back home to someone waiting for us.  An exceptionally lovely book with just the right words, art and cadences to remind us to slow down and not let the awe-filled and curious wonders of life escape us.

Tiny, Perfect Things was written by M. H. Clark, illustrated by Madeline Kloepper and published by Compendium.  It'll be out on June 1.
