Robinson and de la Peña have once again created a moving story with illustrations that encourage children to ask questions and pay close attention.
In Milo Imagines the World we see the story through two points of view, the normal text and illustrations, and Milo’s drawings. This book about family and community is simple and yet, it takes more than one viewing for adults and children to take it all in. This is right up there with Last Stop on Market Street.
Milo draws the places and people he sees, but learns there’s more to people than what you see as you pass by.
I won’t spoil the story for anyone – but this book should be in every school library and I’m glad to have it on my bookshelf.
