I’m so excited to feature Ruth Forman’s picture Book Like So on my book blog. Thank you to @SimonKids for sending me a gifted copy!
Let’s dive in!
From bestselling author Ruth Forman and Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award Honoree Raissa Figueroa comes a lyrical and vibrant picture book honoring the love and bond that exists between family and child even in complicated times.
Told from Nana’s point of view, this simple, affirming, and comforting read-aloud shows how every family’s love is natural and connected to the world around us. Just as the sun loves the day, the moon loves the waves, and the night sky loves the star glow…so is our love for each other: innate, wondrous, and infinite.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR & Illustrator
Ruth Forman is the author of bestselling children’s books, Curls, Glow, Bloom, Ours, One, and Like So, as well as award-winning poetry collections We Are the Young Magicians and Renaissance.
Raissa Figueroa through a series of peculiar events, too long to list here, landed a literary agent who introduced her to the world of children’s books. After about a year, the Universe would come through for Raissa again, and landed several book deals within a very short period of time. In 2020 (of all years) she decided to take the leap and leave her secure full-time job to tread unknown waters by going full steam ahead! at illustration.
