CHESH Review #1- Dan Santat's After the Fall

CHESH Reviews on Facebook/Twitter

This year in order to really hold myself accountable for reading 
lots of Picture Books (a joy I try to partake of every day) I decided 
to start reviewing. The first challenge to make it all doable- keeping it simple.  
In order to keep things simple I made a template a 5 category 1-5 rating system called 
CHESH which stands for: Crave, Heart, Eyes, Soul, and Head. 

Book 1- After the Fall, 
How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again
By Dan Santat 2017
CHESH Score: 24 our of 25
This book is magic. It pulls you into the familiar with Humpty, then turns you over with a new heartfelt and deep thread about anxiety.  Santat was shines in his storytelling here.  Great voice, fabulous pacing and delicious illustrations.
