Picture Book Review: Somewhere

Somewhere by Robie H. Harris

by Robie H. Harris, Armando Mariño (Illustrator)

4 out of 5 stars

A little girl goes on an adventure all her own in the park, finding new places, and discovering little treasures of feathers and flowers. Her father is nearby to keep her safe, but she is exploring independently. When she misses her father, she returns to the park bench to show him all the treasures she has found. They decide to go on an adventure together to a new place they can discover side by side.

This is such a sweet book! The father and daughter are adorable, and I love the way the father encourages his daughter to explore and he appreciates all her little flowers and feathers. He recognizes that these little things are important to her. This is some excellent parenting!

I didn’t always love the art style. I liked that the pages have vibrant colors, and the scenery is beautiful with all these huge plants in the background. But the characters faces are kind of distorted sometimes. Their eyes don’t match each other or something. The illustrations are okay. Not terrible, but not great either.
