Great Kids’ Book: Little Witch Hazel

Yesterday at our library’s Story Time, the reader chose a book that knocked my socks off: Little Witch Hazel: A Year in the Woods, by Phoebe Wahl, from 2021. (Trailer above.) It’s about a tiny witch who lives in the forest, and it follows her on her adventures through the seasons. (The book is divided into four sections.) The kids in the crowd — ages two through five — were mostly entranced.

Two of the book's most beautiful pages are available as prints; my favorite is above.

Wahl's website also led me to an illustrated editorial she did for the NYT last year: "The Joys of Swimming While Fat.”
