From Morning to Night
by Flavia Ruotola
Things are rarely as they first seem, particularly when seen from a different angle, or in a different context. From Morning to Night asks children to look at familiar and simple shapes and notice how they change, one minute a mushroom, the next a cereal bowl, a planet becomes an orange,, a traffic cone, turned on its side, a wind sock. The result is an unusually handsome and clever book that reminds children and parents to look at things carefully and never to judge something (or someone) by its first appearance---wait a moment, look harder, or turn your head and it might be something completely different and unexpected.
