Hike - Cover
Pete Oswald, Candlewick Press 2020
In this almost wordless book, a Dad and a young child get up early, drive to the mountains, and spend the day hiking, through rain and sun, to the top of a mountain, where they plant a tiny tree. Then it's the long trip home and time to snuggle before bed. Both Dad and child are brown skinned - maybe Latinix, maybe Mid-Eastern. A gorgeous book that little ones can read to us by searching the detailed illustrations.
