My favourite children's book of 2018 is...

Book Cover Image Pine and Boof: The lucky leaf...Pine & Boof: The Lucky Leaf by Ross Burach.  I love how this book strikes the perfect balance between silly and sentimental.  Author-illustrator, Burach, does an amazing job of pairing words and pictures to draw us into the story of Boof the Bear and Pine the porcupine who embark on a wild adventure as they attempt to recover Boof’s lucky red leaf.  With vibrant, whimsical illustrations and a sweet message, this book is a must read!  Though it was actually published in 2017, this book was a new addition to our collection early this year and is definitely my favourite read of 2018.  I would also recommend other picture books by this author and can't wait to read the next book in this series Pine & Boof:  Blast off.
