Hidden Gems at La Casa Azul Bookstore 2/11/2014

Happy Tuesday everyone!

This week’s book is Praise Song for the Day by Elizabeth Alexander, illustrated by David Diaz – a beautiful, hidden gem!

In troubling times, it can be difficult to have a positive outlook on life. 
Originally commissioned as a poem for the inauguration of President Obama, Alexander weaves a lyrical text that not only recognizes what is sacrificed to make life great but also heralds an optimistic and uplifting message for tomorrow. David Diaz adds to the message through masterful artwork fused with radiant colors which conveys a sense of hopefulness. The result of this collaboration is a book which should definitely be on anyone’s to-read list. It will leave all those who read it feeling inspired and anticipating what tomorrow will bring.

Think this is a great book? Make sure to keep an eye for it and other great finds in the children’s section at La Casa Azul Bookstore!
