One Family by George Shannon One Family, Hardback (May 2015)

Just how many things can "one" be? One box of crayons. One batch of cookies. One world. One family. From veteran picture book author George Shannon and up-and-coming artist Blanca Gomez comes a playful, interactive book that shows how a family can be big or small and comprised of people of a range of genders and races.

Hands Say Love by George Shannon Hands Say Love, Hardback (May 2015)

A heartfelt, widely accessible poem about one of the most important ways we show love.

Who Put the Cookies in the Cookie Jar? by George Shannon Who Put the Cookies in the Cookie Jar?, Hardback (October 2013)

"It's easy to take a cookie out of the cookie jar: just reach in. But how does it get in there in the first place? It's more complicated than you might think. Someone has to milk the cow, grow the wheat, harvest the sugar cane--everyone has a special job to do to make that cookie possible."--Provided by publisher.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Shannon (April Showers, 1995, etc.) has created an alphabet book that demands of readers imaginative, often arbitrary leaps, from what is to what will be. "B is for eggs - tomorrow's BIRDS" and "R is for grapes - tomorrow's RAISINS." Wheat to flour, clay to pot, caterpillar to moth: Most of the letter play will spark recognition, but the associations of a few are fairly oblique for ABC readers. A is for seed, which becomes an apple, but that's a mighty long botanical road; G sits next to bulbs that become a garden, even though it looks more like a simple cluster of daffodils. "U is for stranger - tomorrow's US" will have a lot of little wheels spinning in vain, and the distance between "X is for foot - tomorrow's X-RAY' is almost unbridgeable. Crews brings to each page his elemental, suggestive brushwork: ketchup that is thick and rich and hard to shake out of the bottle, water that is splashy and cold. (Kirkus Reviews)
