Labracadabra Love: Celebration Week Continues

My first love for books (that I remember) came in the form of chapter books. There is something magical about reading something by yourself, and having just a few illustrations paint the picture, while your imagination fills in blanks. And speaking of magical, I was reminded of those qualities while reading Labracadabra.
I just love the composition Deb uses in the illustration above. Both Zach (the boy) and Larry (the dog) have the same tilt to their bodies. They are just getting to know each other. Deb captured that moment when boy meets dog so well throughout this book. Each illustration is meaningful, and charming. Just what young children need when venturing bravely into their reading world solo.
Be sure to enter the giveaway with a comment in any of this week's posts. It would be lovely to share this book with a new reader of your own (or keep all to yourself too!)

You are right about that tilt Ggina.. Deb is wonderful :o)

Ok, I never really noticed that tilt until you mentioned it Gina. It was definitely a sub-conscious thing. I did not plan for that! :)
