Photography books for children are rare, so I was especially excited to discover "Everywhere, Always," a new book by the husband-and-wife duo Jason Schmidt (a T contributor) and Cory Jacobs. In the spirit of "Where’s Waldo?" the book follows the couple’s tiny, orange-clad son, Jules, to big Brooklyn landmarks. The accompanying poetic text by Alex Vlack subtly prompts the reader not only to seek out Jules but also to admire with fresh eyes everything from the cherry blossoms in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden to the horses in Jane’s Carousel in Brooklyn Bridge Park. An illustrated map by Nicholas Blechman charts Jules’s journey through his beloved borough. Next week, on June 10, the entire family will sign copies of "Everywhere, Always" at Dashwood Books in New York City.
