Wherever You Go

Wherever You GoWritten by Pat Zietlow Miller, Illustrated by Eliza Wheeler

It is still early yet in the year for award nominations, but Wherever You Go is on my list for a possible Caldecott award. This book is simply lovely, both the beautiful illustrations and touching message. Eliza Wheeler’s drawings (done in ink, watercolors and gouache – not digital) are detailed, yet soft and gentle. There is sooo much to look at on every page! (Can you find the hedgehog on stilts at the carnival? And where is the rabbit and his bike on the page about the bay?) Children will enjoy the sweet, rhyming story. Adults will see a deeper message: life can be an amazing journey, but we will always have a yearning for home.
