Note: With his colorful illustrations and timeless stories, Leo Lionni is a regular guest in our home, but it’s always the usual suspects:
Pezzettino feels like Plato’s Cave for the toddler set. A little orange piece named Pezzettino (Italian for “little piece”) asks larger pieces if he is a part of them – a legitimate question considering they are made up of small, colorful pieces.
When all answer no, he takes a boat to the deserted Island of Wham where he discovers – after a fall down the mountain – that like the others, he too is made of little pieces.
Dark night of the soul
Crossing the sea of consciousness
Variations on “one” name
This is the type of book that kiddos will enjoy as just a fun story…then remember in their 40’s as the book that shaped their personal philosophy.
Perfect for: budding philosophers, kiddos who like bright illustrations, Matrix fans
Not so perfect for: Monochromatiphiles
