LOVE AND THE ROCKING CHAIR by Leo and Diane Dillon. New York: Blue Sky Press, 2019. 40p.  ISBN 978-1338332650 hc. $18.99      PreSchool - K     E PIC

This simple story centers around a rocking chair in vibrant, colorful paintings, characteristic of most  picture books by the Dillons.  A family awaiting their first child buys a rocking chair for the baby's room.  As the child grows, he uses the rocking chair in a variety of ways, but eventually stores it in the attic.  The chair comes out of storage when the boy becomes a man and expects a baby of his own.  This is a beautiful story of the life cycle, as one generation makes way for the next.
