We’re excited to bring you another fantastic selection for building your family’s bookshelf. It’s never too early to start teaching our Mini Macaronis a love of books and reading.
This month our selection is After the Fall by Caldecott medal-winning author Dan Santat. Featuring nursery rhyme favorite Humpty Dumpty, this picture book shows how after his fall he becomes afraid of heights and will no longer climb on the wall to watch the birds.
The book examines the themes of fear and trauma and shows the resiliency of Humpty when he reaches deep and finds the courage to climb back up the wall. What an important lesson for kids, but told in an age-appropriate way that will leave a lasting impression.
After the Fall is available for purchase online here.
Enjoy this new classic again and again as your children discover how to reach new heights!
