Every now and then we encounter a new children's book or series that we’re so excited about we want to broadcast it from the rooftop. We've created the Tattered Cover Picture Book of the Month (formerly called Kids' V.I.B.) to highlight real stand-outs among the many delightful and meaningful new editions for young readers.
Our latest selection is:
Scratchie: A Touch-and-Feel Cat-Venture by Maria Putri
A board book like I’ve never seen before! This book encourages babies and toddlers to sharpen their (figurative) claws and explore a fun new texture on almost every page. Scratchie the cat is perfectly feline with its unimpressed expression—until the last page, when the reader gets to scratch the fuzzy cat itself and Scratchie grants us all a smile. Amazingly, Maria Putri is a recent art school graduate, and this genius idea was a project she began in school. This is a brand new talent to watch, and book to bring home and enjoy with all one’s senses! —Bethany Strout, Director of Buying
