A School Library Journal Popular Pick

A young boy makes an unlikely friend on his way to school in this sweet and charming picture book from the illustrator of A Hop Is Up.

One thing is for sure. Pax is the littlest everywhere he goes. In school. At playtime. On the train. Then Pax meets a pigeon at the park—he names him Blue and makes a friend who knows what it’s like to be small. And understanding each other can lead to the best friendships.

A story of friendship, compassion & a reminder that it isn't always easy being small First, I love the book's design- the case is an old-fashioned wrap and the matte paper is perfect for the monochromatic palette offset with bright pops of yellow, red, and green. The perspectives vary wonderfully; my favorite is the cross-section of subway or maybe it's the close-up of Blue's face. But most of all, this is such a sweet story of friendship b/t a city kid, Pax, and his friend, Blue, a little blue pigeon. When Blue gets himself into a bit of a situation, Pax, who also knows what it feels like to be little, knows just how to save the day.

PAX AND BLUE is a fantastic story about friendship, showing preschool and kindergarten students how to help friends when they get stuck. A FABULOUS way to teach PLOT to young readers (setting, characters, conflict, resolution, ect.). The taxi cabs, park, and subway immediately transport readers to a NY setting. I recommend adding to a home or classroom library.
