February 2014

In our February picture book roundup, we have plenty of books whose amusing wordplay and deft illustrations --- whether quirky or stunning --- are sure to take you out of your winter doldrums. THE NOISY PAINT BOX by Barb Rosenstock with illustrations by Mary Grandpré delves into the childhood of Vasya Kandinsky, and shows children how his synesthesia helped him see music, hear color and create some of the world's most amazing paintings.
