There is a new series of books from Quarto called Bright Start. This is the first that I have read; if this is any indication, the books will be welcomed by those with young children.
A mom and her child go for a walk together. They observe the animals with whom they interact. The sounds that the animals make are their thank yous and the mom and child together enjoy them, as for example, when a horse neighs after being given a carrot. The walk itself is something that the child thanks her mom for.
The illustrations are simple with black, white and a bit of color yet they are very engaging. The dog Duke in particular has a lot of personality.
This is a sweet and simple story. It feels just right for the youngest children as it reminds them to be aware of the things that we may be thankful for and shows a warm relationship between a mother and child.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this read in exchange for an honest opinion.
