Discover the joys of nature, seasons, family—and the vibrant colors of them all—in this lyrical picture book from the author of the acclaimed Blue on Blue.
A child is on a colorful journey through the seasons, filled with yellow flowers and blue coral in spring and summer and orange pumpkins and green pine forests in fall and winter. All the while, there is another colorful change on the horizon—the birth of a new sibling.
With gentle, rhyming text and vivid artwork, this book is a heartfelt celebration of family, nature, seasons, colors, and the wonder and magic of them all.
Growing up, I never planned to become a writer. My sister was the storyteller in our family and that was just fine by me. I loved reading books, playing music, and learning new languages.
Years later, when I became an elementary school teacher, all three “favorites” followed me into the classroom. During the day, I read great books, sang, and even taught kids who were learning English for the first time. At night, I practiced writing picture books. I did that for many years! Today, I’m lucky enough to write full-time. When I’m not at my desk, I’m usually outside, enjoying the sunshiny goodness of Arizona.
