Connecticut native, author, and illustrator Brendan Wenzel is coming to visit to read his new environmental and nature picture book A Stone Sat Still. After reading, Brendan will share his inspiration for this beautifully drawn and calming story!
The brilliant follow-up to the Caldecott Honor-winning and New York Times bestselling picture book They All Saw a Cat by Brendan Wenzel!

A Stone Sat Still tells the story of a seemingly ordinary rock—but to the animals that use it, it is a resting place, a kitchen, a safe haven...even an entire world.

This is a gorgeous exploration of perspective, perception, and the passage of time
, with an underlying environmental message that is timely and poignant.
  • Filled with stunning illustrations in cut paper, pencil, collage, and paint
  • Soothing rhythms invite reading aloud and bedtime snuggles
  • Introduces concepts like color, size, function, and time in a way that is easily understandable and teachable for children
With a rhythmic, calming narrative about the stone and its place in the world—and the changing environment—A Stone Sat Still proves Brendan Wenzel's mastery of the picture book form.

This modern children's classic will enchant readers in preschool and kindergarten, as well as the adults that read with them.
Brendan Wenzel is a New York Times bestselling author and illustrator based in upstate New York. He's the creator of Hello Hello and They All Saw a Cat, which was the recipient of a Caldecott Honor. Brendan is a proud collaborator with groups working to protect and conserve wild places and creatures.
