Now by Antoinette Portis

How do you spend your day? Are you worried about “what ifs”? Do you compare yourself with others and always come up short?

In her picture book Now, Antoinette Portis challenges young readers to see joy in each moment. This book follows a little girl as she shares her favorite things—a leaf she has found, a paper boat she sets sail, and her missing tooth.

It’s a great reminder to be thankful for each moment and a perfect read-aloud that celebrates the little things in life that are really big things. Ages 3 and up. (Roaring Brook Press)
