This month we’re sharing the best children’s books published in 2016 and we know that Jon Klassen needs no introduction. The final book in his series, We Found a Hat, was released a couple of months ago. Strunk and White would be fans of Jon Klassen’s hat trilogy. The text presents a narrative that is crisp, tight and to the point, eschewing needless superfluity, with the illustrations telling many more aspects of the story. With Jon’s work, there’s more to it than meets the eye. Kids will recognize the subtle and irreverent humor embedded in the pictures after a few good reads. They’ll also realize how much intention you really can read in someone’s eyes, which is something they might not typically give much thought.
We’re partnering with Candlewick Press to give away a set of Jon Klassen’s hat trilogy: I Want My Hat Back, This Is Not My Hat and We Found a Hat. This giveaway is open to US residents only and ends on Sunday, December 11, at 11:59 PST. Head over to this Instagram post to enter.
