Product description


“…a groundbreaking new twist on the traditional literary experience… Textbook is a delightful collection of interesting scenarios that directly point to life lessons. Rosenthal manages to spotlight grand moments and everyday moments with equal curiosity, proving that it can be both a privilege — and petrifying — to peek into one’s humanity.”
—Associated Press

“[Textbook Amy Krouse Rosenthal is] as beautiful, thrilling, brief, sad, and quotidian as a sunset.”
—Fast Company

"Textbook Amy Krouse Rosenthal, subtitled Not Exactly a Memoir, is quirky, rambling and funny, as befits a children’s book author. Poems, photos, drawings and musings add up to a charming but gently incisive experience—and the most simply exquisite ending." 
—Family Circle

“Textbook Amy Krouse Rosenthal: Not Exactly a Memoir
leaps beyond traditional books in structure and offers engaging views of life that are relatable, intriguing and enlightening… Rosenthal’s vivid wondering and quirky views present a textbook case of someone who understands that her next adventure is just around the corner.”
—Raleigh News & Observer

“...episodic, funny, and highly visual” —EntertainmentWeekly.com
“Rosenthal is a marvel… a talented storyteller with an experimental flair for formatting… This engaging, playful, and clever glimpse into one woman’s life offers lots of photographs, graphic illustrations, and diagrams, resulting in a book that will make readers smile as their notions of story delivery expand.” 

“Part memoir, part art instillation... More than an intriguing concept, [Textbook Amy Krouse Rosenthal] is an artful arrangement of image and text and a compelling read. An abundant use of white space reveals that Rosenthal is unafraid to take breaths between thoughts. In doing so, she gives her audience the same generous opportunity, pairing the best of what print and digital have to offer: narrative for contemplation and online interaction for community. Readers will want to return to this book again and also share it with those they love best.”
—Library Journal

"Part memoir, part interactive art piece, part, well, textbook, children’s author Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s latest grown-up offering delights the reader with a series of musings, drawings, photos, music, graphs, and even a bracket bracket where [ ] faces off against { } under section headings like Social Studies, Language Arts, and Math."

About the Author

Amy Krouse Rosenthal writes for both adults and children. Her alphabetically structured memoir Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life was named one of the top ten of the decade. She has written more than thirty children’s picture books, including Little Pea, Spoon, Exclamation Mark, Duck! Rabbit!, Uni the Unicorn, and I Wish You More.  A New York Times review declared that her children’s books “radiate fun the way tulips radiate spring: they are elegant and spirit-lifting.” Amy has been a regular contributor to YouTube (The Beckoning of Lovely, The Money Tree), public radio, and TED (7 Notes on Life).
