Title: Livi & Grace
Author: Jennifer Lynch
Illustrator: Missi Jay
Sisters Livi and Grace could not be more different from one another. Grace is carefree and loves splashing in puddles while Livi always wants things done just right. But the one thing they have in common is that they love and respect each other’s uniqueness.
Missi Jay has created some wonderful illustrations that showcase both the sister’s differences (from their facial features and dress sense to their likes and dislikes). At the end of the book are two letters to the reader, one from Grace and one from Livi*, each written and illustrated in their own unique way – this perfectly sums up the magic of this book.
This book surprised me with its fun rhymes and beautiful message. I loved it.
*In her author profile, it states “Jennifer Lynch lives with the real Livi and Grace in Austin, Texas.” So I’m guessing the letters at the end were written by her children – what a fabulous touch and fitting end to this wonderful book.
