Cloth Lullaby | Little Lit Book Series

This year has seen so many amazing picture books, and this is one of our favorites shared by @teeandpenguin.

Are any of you non fiction fans?  We sure are, so imagine our excitement about Cloth Lullaby which is an amazing picture book biography of artist Louise Bourgeois.  It tells Louise's story starting with her idyllic childhood filled with days spent by the family garden in a cloth tent then, as she grew, learning her family's intricate trade of repairing tapestries (at age 12) to her college years where she studied mathematics at the Sorbonne and how she moved on to creating spider sculptures in remembrance of her mother.

The illustrations are captivating and poetic with the use of a color palette mostly limited to indigo, red and grey.  Simply stunning!  Recommended for ages 6-9.  Cloth Lullaby was written by Amy Novesky, illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault and published by Abrams Books for Young Readers.
