"Please tell him that we absolutely adore his book(s)! Because of Building Our House, Connor, tonight, figured out which walls of the house face which direction, why the earth moves, where the north star was and why it doesn’t move, the difference between a nail and a screw, and how a concrete mixer works and why concrete hardens. I stalled him when he started asking how snow plows work. Also, his other book, “At Night,” taught Connor to read his first word--AWAKE. His work is gorgeous and amazing and so adorably detailed, there’s so much to take in. I look forward to rereading this book for the next 4 weeks. I’m sure there’s depths even then to be parsed."
