One Little Bag by Henry Cole | Book Talk

I love the Earth.

I love wordless picture books.

I love Henry Cole’s art.

If you like any (or all) of these things, you will probably dig this book.

Book Description from the publisher:

A wordless book that starts from a tall tree growing in the forest –

to the checkout counter at the grocery store –

one brown bag finds its way into the hands of a young boy on the eve of his first day of school.

And so begins the journey of one brown bag that is used

and re-used

and re-used again.

In a three-generation family, the bag is transporter of objects and keeper of memories. And when Grandfather comes to the end of his life, the family finds a meaningful new way for the battered, but much-loved brown bag to continue its journey in the circle of life.
