I have a few up my sleeve that I’d like to recommend but first up is Flotsam, by David Wiesner (2007). The book is whimsical, fantastic, mysterious and a Caldecott Medal winner. You will spot something new in the pictures every time you re-read the book. We liked that the boy looked somewhat like my son will look when he is older and I sometimes tell the story as though it were happening to Rain. We absolutely adored the way the mystery of the camera found on the beach unfolded and were delighted with the imaginative underwater photos. Even a few pages in, I was hooked by Rain’s quizzical intrigued smile.
