KidArtLit is honored to participate in this year’s @bookstagramchoiceawards, and our pick for Best Artfully Illustrated Picture Book is.... (🥁, please)—‘One Thousand Trees,’ by the award-winning visual artist Kyle Hughes Odgers. 🏆 This sweet story is sparse with words but, “its soft watercolor illustrations brim with color and beauty.” (@ebuhr) 🍂🍃
.
The story follows Frankie, deep in the heart of the city, as he dreams of a thousand trees. Over them, under them, through them, above them. The imagery of the illustrations is vast and all encompassing, while the watercolor medium softens, soothes, and lends the tale a lullaby feel. The emphasis on prepositions in the text creates a beautiful built-in vocabulary lesson, too. 🍂

But also, and most importantly, ‘One Thousand Trees’ is just beautiful. From the cover to the end papers readers will be swept away on the journey of imagination and discovery Frankie excitedly takes them on. The illustrations will move readers to feel appreciation, connection, and love for nature’s seasonal gifts. 🍂
