Our book of the week is...
“Just the Two of Us”
by Will Smith
illustrated by Kadir Nelson
“Just the Two of Us” is another book previously featured in our “Father’s Day Book Melange” in June (see here). It’s a beautifully poetic book written by famed lyricist and blockbuster movie maker Will Smith, and wonderfully illustrated by famous artist Kadir Nelson. It was featured as one of our Father’s Day favorites because it’s a cute story about a dad watching his son grow up before his eyes. There are several additional splendid aspects in and about this book that made it worthy of donning it’s personal Book of the Week spot, too.
Here are several reasons we featured “Just the Two of Us” children’s book as one of our recommended favorites.
Yes, it’s a keeper for us and a must-have staple to add to your library collection as well. You’ll enjoy reading each “lyric” along with the wonderful illustrations to compliment the story. You’ll want to hear it read in music-form. Maybe we can write in to Will Smith and see if he’ll provide storytime at our homeschool support group meeting some day, right!? RIGHT!
