A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra
Read this only if you're not afraid to have your heart broken. Beyond that, of course, lies the intensity of realizing what a gift we have in the ongoing pulses of those we love. This is the work of a very fine writer.
On a Beam of Light by Jennifer Berne
What does contemplation look like? What can wondering lead to? Copake author, Jennifer Berne, and Massachusetts illustrator, Vladimir Radunsky, have called on their own imaginations to create a picture book that celebrates the childhood and discoveries of the seminal scientist with the crazy hair, Albert Einstein. A joyful book for sharing.
