The Rough PatchBook - 2018
From Library Staff
"I appreciate a picture book that really looks at how grief will manifest itself... I love that the book's message is that it's okay to have a rough patch but there will always be another puppy at the end of the patch." Recommended by Jimmy.
2019 Caldecott Honor Award Winner: “Evan and his dog did everything together” until “one day, the unthinkable happened”. With compelling compositions and mastery of light and shadow, Brian Lies illustrates an emotional arc of loss, grief, healing, and hope. [ALA]
