    One thought on “The Knowing Book

    1. Beth on said:

      There is something so profound and transcendent about this book yet I can't put my finger on what it is. The words feel like song lyrics even though they don't rhyme. There's just a rhythm and a depth to the words that goes beyond just a picture book for children. This is one of those books I will surely have to own.

      A great gift book for lots of occasions!Our author interview herereadingyear/2016/

      I picked this up because I had heard it fits a similar niche to "Oh, the Places You'll Go." It's true! Made me happy to read it and to pass it on.

      The Knowing Book is a gem of a book. It is beautifully written and illustrated. The book can be read slowly in sections to reflect its great wisdom or gobbled up as a whole. This is a text that can be used to help students with life and used as a mentor text for student writing. This is the perfect book to covet when you are feeling lost, or if you need a little pick me up to remember why your life is beautiful- it is all about the journey.

      This beautifully written and illustrated picture book would be an interesting way to talk about theme as young readers try to consider the message that the author shares. This book invites readers to live life fully by experiencing the world around us and discovering simple joys. This is a lovely book to have on any library's shelves.

    6. Jocelin on said:

      This was an enjoyable read. I would have given it 5 stars but, the ending was a little weird. This book does explore the idea of imagination and it's power to transform one's life. It's a very positive and uplifting book.

      Beautifully illustrated picture book for an older audience, advising living life to the fullest and appreciating and being open to the world. One of those picture books to give to graduates.

    8. Matthew on said:

      Bought this book for my baby goat and it was one of the few books she actually paid attention to. Very beautiful and a lovely flow of words.

    9. Samantha on said:

      This book made me cry at my desk. So poignant and beautiful- I think this is a book all people of all ages need. This is the new "Oh The Places You'll Go."

    10. Michelle Simpson on said:

      This will make a fabulous gift book! The illustrations are beautiful!

    11. Wendy on said:

      Many picture books are offered as graduation gifts for any age. This book is now my favorite to recommend.

    12. Carolanne on said:

      I love this book and have purchased several copies as gifts for a variety of occasions! I gave one to a friend who was making some major changes in her life - changing careers, moving to another city. I gave one to a friend who teaches in another country. I recommend it to staff & neighbors as an alternative graduation gift to "Oh the places you'll go". I read it with my 6th grade classes during our last class of the year as they head off to middle school - the silence at the end of the read [...]

      An inspirational book that follows a rabbit through adventures in the world knowing that the sky and home are always a constant you will know. The illustrations are reminiscent of Quentin Blake and a bit too cluttered for my tastes, though I do enjoy Quentin Blake's illustrations. This book would be a nice gift book for a recent graduate, like Oh, The Places You Will Go. Not many young children will understand the meaning behind the words, though they are beautiful and lyrical.

    14. Sheri on said:

      The rabbit in this book is a bit of a guru telling you what to do and what you will find. He reassures you to look around you, explore, try new things, imagine, take time to do things. Look up. . . the sky . . . count on it, it is what you will always know. Very comforting and reassuring book.

    15. Bethe on said:

      Such lovely and inspiring and common sense yet whimsical sentiments - perfect for anyone on a new beginning! Love the illustrations!

    16. Kelly on said:

      This book could certainly earn 5 stars because of its beautiful story (the pictures are a little sloppy and busy). But what brings it down is that it is such heavy and deep material for a child.

      Firefly nominee. Too much for little ones -liked it ok for myself.

    18. Ron on said:

      A simple book (mostly pictures) that gives some advice on taking the time to enjoy life.

    19. Dayna Derichs on said:

      Rationale for choosing this book:These opening moves will help to engage your reader, primary or intermediate, in a book about life-changes and how we can look for the best in the changes life throws at us. This is a good book for all kids but can support goal setting lessons as well as end of the year or beginning of the year community building lessons. So often our students are subjected to changes in their lives that they do not choose. This book helps them to look for the lessons learned in [...]

      This picture book begins with the reminder that the sky is always above you, no matter what. A little rabbit with a long scarf makes his way along an adventure with a wise narrator explaining that there are wonderful things alive in this world. There is magic where you least expect it. There is adventure if you leave the mapped roads. It is OK to both hum and cry. It’s important to trust yourself. The little rabbit gains skills on his adventure and lots of confidence too. In the end, the book [...]

    21. Suzanne on said:

      A mixture of Goodnight Moon and Oh, the Places You'll Go! is a good first impression of The Knowing Book. A young bunny goes out into the world and sees the sky overhead, something that will always be there. Journeying over hills and through thunderstorms, looking out at the sea or across a valley, watching clouds or flying a kite, the bunny learns important lessons. Phrases like "there is a magic around you but it hides," or "don't be too busy to slosh in a puddle" share some of the knowledge t [...]

      When I looked out my front window this morning, I knew I would see the row of snow-capped mountain peaks reaching toward the sky like eager fingers. I knew flashes of white, black and iridescent blue would signal the gathering of the resident magpies roosting in their favorite pine tree. I knew chickadees would be flitting from bush to bush and tree to tree. When I looked through my back window I knew I would see piles of needless and cones on my deck and yard dropped from the Ponderosa pines. I [...]

      Illustrations remind me of Quentin Blake so it's soft and lovely. I usually really enjoy stories like this but found it beyond boring.
