In a Jar by Deborah Marcero

IN A JAR by Deborah Marcero (40 pp, G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers) – a Spring 2020 release that may have escaped your notice, given world events at the time. This gorgeous book chronicles the friendship of two rabbits, Llewellyn and Evelyn, who collect seemingly uncollectable things (rainbows, the sound of the ocean, and the wind just before a snow fall) to display in jars on shelves in their neighboring homes – until Evelyn announces she is moving away. Their inventive ways to continue sharing their discoveries is such an inspired tale for kids finding themselves with a smaller, but hopefully just as creative, social circle these days.
