Where Will You Go, Ricky Jo? written by Tom Murdoch and illustrated by Marina Veselinovic was published in 2018. The author, Tom Murdoch, recently sent me two copies of this book for our NICU book project.
I like the size of this book. It's about 8 inches by 8 inches. This book is a well made hardback with heavy pages which will help it last longer.
The illustrations are cute and colorful, and the story takes the reader on a dream adventure.
Ricky Jo goes to the shoe store, the park, the ocean, a farm, and the mountains. He rides on a firetruck, an airplane, and a horse. The story is fun to read as it has rhythm and rhyme.
Thank you, Tom, for sending books for the littlest of readers.
Read to a child today even if that child is you.
Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.
