Two-time Caldecott Medalists Leo and Diane Dillon celebrate the love we feel for our children in this touching, multi-generational story about the lasting power of family.Simple words and colorful paintings tell the warm, engaging story of new parents who buy a rocking chair when they are expecting a baby. Bright, sunny illustrations show the precious intimacy between parents and their children; the new mother glows with affection, and the new father reads aloud to their young son. Time passes, and the boy grows up; the beloved rocker is moved to the attic and gathers dust. But when the boy becomes a man, the cycle begins anew. He and his wife have a baby girl, and the rocking chair is needed again. Legendary artists Leo and Diane Dillon are two of the greatest illustrators of our time. This is their final collaboration, inspired by their own rocking chair. It is a tender tribute to the enduring power of family love-passed from generation to generation. Here is a book for all ages to cherish. It serves as a loving reminder of those who have gone before us-and those who are still to come.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Diane Dillon, Leo DillonPublisher: Blue Sky Press (AZ)Published: 10/15/2019ISBN: 9781338332650Pages: 40Weight: 1.10lbsSize: 12.10h x 9.20w x 0.40dReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 07/08/2019Kirkus Reviews 08/15/2019Booklist 09/01/2019 pg. 114Horn Book Magazine 09/01/2019 pg. 56Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 11/01/2019School Library Journal 10/01/2019 pg. 66Shelf Awareness 11/19/2019Hornbook Guide to Children 07/01/2019 - Superior,Well Above AverageAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 507796 / Love and the Rocking ChairReading Level: 4 / Interest Level: Lower Grade / Point Value: 0.5
