After The Fall: How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again

After The Fall: How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again… yep, I cried. This book, by Dan Santat, is beautiful on so many levels. Turns out all the king’s men were able to put Humpty back together again, but some parts couldn’t be fixed. The fear and anxiety Humpty experiences is very real and relatable side affect of the trauma he experienced. But he ultimately faces his fear and decides he won’t let it stop him from doing something he loves. It’s a complex story and life lesson written so cleverly that people of all ages can find value in it’s pages. The pictures are stunning and add to the emotion of the story. I loved everything about this book and the genius story it tells. Have you read it? Did you tear up or was it just me?
