Mom and Me, Me and Mom

Miguel Tanco. Chronicle, $12.99 (36p) ISBN 978-1-4521-7190-6

Working in spare, scribbly lines and with Pantone coral accents, Tanco captures tender moments of discovery shared between a free-spirited mother and child, both with curly, yarnlike hair. The girl shows her mom “how to be messy” by playing with mud in the backyard. The mother teaches the girl to “see nature” while walking on a snowy lane, and, at an art museum, the daughter teaches her mother “how to see things differently” (the girl appears more in awe of a water cooler than of the art on the walls). Other activities include playing basketball and gazing at the night sky through a telescope (“even though I am small, I show you how to look further”). A chic celebration of the mother-daughter bond.
