This very special picture book, a contemporary fable about practising gratitude, mindfulness and living in the present, is from the acclaimed Kyle Mewburn with gorgeous, dreamy illustrations by the talented Laura Bee. Have You Seen Tomorrow provides young readers with a deft exploration of the concept of yesterday, today and tomorrow, a satisfying ending and much food for thought. A story to be read and reread.
Maria Gill, Kids Books NZ ~ You’ll want to meet the wonderful cast of characters, hear how tomorrow is described, and find out if they actually find it…Laura Bee has created stunning scenes of an idyllic country summer day. Kyle has worked her magic with words and spun a tale that will get children thinking about appreciating what is right in front of them.
Ann Packer, NZ Listener 50 Best Kids’ Books ~ There’s no time like the present: that’s the message in this charming picture book about a rabbit for whom the grass is always greener somewhere else – whether you’re looking for it with your eyes, smelling it, listening for it or – beware! – yearning to taste it.
