There is a Tribe of Kids











There is a Tribe of Kids

by Lane Smith
Roaring Brook Press, 2016

It’s the exquisite illustrations that make this book work.  I think the author/illustrator Lane Smith created the words just to stretch his artistic genius.  Using oils, acrylic varnish, colored pencils, graphite and more, the readers follow a young boy as he explores different groupings of wildlife.  From a colony of penguins, to a smack of jellyfish, to an unkindness of ravens, we follow the mischievous boy as he playfully explores his worlds.  Moving through a bed of clams and a night of dreams, the boy discovers a tribe of kids like him!  Readers rejoice with the boy when he sees all the playful, creative kids to play with.
