Read This Now: The Index
What if there were an army of indie booksellers enthusiastically reading and reviewing practically every new book coming out in the next year, and what if the books they were the most excited about, the books they couldn't wait to push into their customers' hands with a breathless "You've GOT to read this!" (virtually or otherwise), the ones with all the nine- and ten-star ratings were carefully curated and collected in a handy list? Well, all we can say is...KEEP READING!
In Crescendo, Quintavalle and Sanna tap into the improbable magic of growing a child--impending motherhood calls for so much wonder and mystery at the little one you have yet to meet, and this joyful, colorful ode hits all the right notes. A perfect gift for any mother, new, old, or yet-to-be!
Crescendo by Paola Quintavalle, Alessandro Sanna (Artist) ($19.95*, Enchanted Lion Books), recommended by Avid Bookshop, Athens, GA.
