Here and Now
Julia Denos, ILLUSTRATED BY E. B. GOODALE
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, SEPTEMBER 3, 2019
Explore identity and connection, inspire curiosity, and prompt engaging discussions about the here and now.
“The ink and watercolor images complement the text beautifully, with close-ups and panoramic views shifting to cozy vignettes, all emphasizing the focus on emotional connection between characters. The illustration accompanying “Unseen work is being done” shows two people, the black child from the cover and an Asian-presenting older figure, embracing in the field. These characters, followed intermittently throughout, are reading their own copy of Here and Now, which allows several opportunities for playfulness in the pictures, which tell their own story.” Read full review here.
