Board Book For Kids - Sockeye Silver, Saltchuck Blue by Roy Henry Vickers & Robert Budd
With vibrant illustrations and a glossy tactile finish, this sturdy board book introduces babies and toddlers to a kaleidoscope of colours and the rhythm of changing seasons on the West Coast. Sockeye Silver, Saltchuck Blue follows the shifting spectrum of the Pacific Northwest including the quiet grey rain of winter, the verdant growth of spring, the jewel red tones of tart summer huckleberries and the shimmering scales of a spawning sockeye salmon as it turns from silver to red in fall. Like Hello Humpback! and One Eagle Soaring, this board book will be sure to enthrall the very youngest readers while introducing the delights of the natural world.
Prize(s): Winner Gold in the Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards for Board Books in 2019 (2019)
“Sockeye Silver, Saltchuck Blue is visually stunning, and children (and adult readers) will want to return to its pages and linger over its images that resonate with a quiet peacefulness… Highly recommended.” ––Review in Canadian Review of Materials, June 15
