Today’s featured picture book is about the atomic bomb. What I find fascinating about this book is the words you will not read. Atomic Bomb, Manhattan Project, WWII, Japan and Germany never appear. So what are you left with? What do you see? What does it mean? We talk with this story’s author, Jonah Winter, about this chilling and powerful picture book.
