ALL AROUND US @ BOOKWORKS!


11AM AT BOOKWORKS IN ALBUQUERQUE
SATURDAY, MARCH 30

“Okay, I am ready to sell All Around Us! It is beautiful. I answered the phone just as I closed the book. I couldn't say hello for a couple of seconds because I had tears welling up.” —Connie Griffin, Bookworks, Albuquerque, NM


A transcendent, perfectly gorgeous book, as magical as childhood feels in its best times. Rich, warm, comforting words & images to hold closely in your mind. ―Naomi Shihab Nye


All Around Us begs to be shared over and over. The use of lines and strokes conveys energy, spirit, magic. And I love the way it connects us all to the idea that we come from inside, from the earth, from something gentle and primal, and that is where go back to—and we better take care of it.   —Yuyi Morales
