Welcome to the Release Day Blitz for Matthew Farina & Doug Salati’s newest book, out now, Lawrence in the Fall. I just couldn’t resist helping out when I got the mail this morning requesting my help. Just look at that cute cover, just read the blurb. This is a book I would love to read!
For today’s post? I got information on this book/author+illustrator, I got a couple of pages from the book, and there is a giveaway you can join (US only, sorry).
Now before we start, I want to congratulate both the author and the illustrator on the book coming out. Hip hip hooray! I hope you have a wonderful day.
When Lawrence Fox’s teacher announces that students will be presenting their collections at show-and-tell, Lawrence realizes he doesn’t have anything to share.
Luckily, Papa knows just what to do to help! Together, they venture into the woods. Lawrence is scared at first, but as he grows comfortable in the forest, he starts to recognize its magic, and how beautiful and unique each tree and leaf is, allowing him to gather a splendid, one-of-a-kind collection of his own!
