The new book “Herman and Rosie” brought tears to my eyes when I opened it recently. At once a celebration of individuality and a story of finding someone who truly understands you, this uniquely illustrated book is a story for all ages.

It is obvious to readers from the beginning that Herman, an oboe-playing crocodile, and Rosie, a jazz-singing doe, are meant to be together. Living in New York City, both enjoy the hustle and bustle of their busy lives, but sometimes find themselves lonely amid the crowds. Their lives must go through many twists and turns before their paths finally cross.

Author Gus Gordon does an amazing job of making this children’s book applicable to young people, and it is engaging and adorable for older readers. I loved ”Herman and Rosie” so much that I immediately bought a copy.

Usually, this just means Jim, one of our partners, uploaded the article. There's an off chance it could be an intern, though, so be nice.
