Carin Berger's playful new picture book is a jubilant celebration of going green.
Carin Berger is an award-winning designer and illustrator. In a starred review, Kirkus said of her Forever Friends, "Sophisticated, sensitive, and accessible, this picture book will offer new insights and pleasures with each season." The Little Yellow Leaf was a 2008 New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Books selection, and in a starred review, School Library Journal called her OK Go "clever," "innovative," and "sleekly designed." She is also the illustrator of Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant, by Jack Prelutsky, among other books. Carin Berger's cut-paper collages are made using ephemera, such as catalogues, old books, receipts, letters, and ticket stubs. She lives with her family in New York City.
“The offbeat presentation will undoubtedly initiate interest among older readers, and the fanciful collages (made from recycled materials) will have artistic readers poring over the pages. A classy book that will have multiple uses in a variety of settings.”
-School Library Journal (starred review)
“Berger’s playful take on going green introduces the simple changes even wee ones can make to lighten the carbon load.”
“This visual commentary on the fast pace of contemporary society and the environmental impact of cars and fossil fuels is powerful in its simplicity and accessibility.”
