Bibliophile's Corner


Vacation
by Blexbolex

Goodreads Description:
Time moves slowly on vacation. And for someone who has spent a long time entertaining themselves and has had the garden, the kitchen, forest paths, the lake, and even Grandpa all to herself, it can be hard to invite another in on the fun. So when a young girl’s grandfather brings an elephant home to stay, she is not pleased at all. Nostalgic and often dreamlike, this wordless story is about interrupted solitude, learning to be together with another, and how the choices we make deeply affect our lives.

My Thoughts:
The art and simple messages in this extraordinarily beautiful book took me back to those carefree days of my childhood. This story needs no words to convey the joy of a young girl on her vacation. The need for a child to embrace her imagination while reading this work of art is what I love most about it. And, if your child loved Babar, then Vacation will surely resonate in her young heart since an elephant is a featured character. I highly recommend Vacation to readers of all ages!
