The Lost (and Found) Balloon, by Celeste Jenkins and Maria Bogade, is a beautifully illustrated, rhyming picture book about a little girl who sends a note on a balloon. The balloon takes a trip around the globe and as the story unfolds, children wonder about where in the world it might land. Ultimately the note is answered by a surprising new friend.
Children ages 4-8 will love the illustrations and the rhyming couplets in this darling book about reaching out in friendship. I love reading this type of book aloud, and asking my students to guess at the rhymes. I can’t wait to read it to my students!
