What Matters Most

Candlewick/Templar. May 2023. 22p. Board $10.99. ISBN 9781536229783.
PreS-K–In drawings that look as if a coloring book was washed in textures and scrubbed in color, an older horse and younger one ponder what matters: being big or small? Is it having a lot of things? They talk about courage, being alone, staying home, or going out. Somehow, they conclude that love matters most.
VERDICT Sweet illustrations try to send the book soaring, but the flat-footed treatment of philosophical questions is earthbound. Additional.
