BLUE FLOATS AWAY Turns Two!
Blue Floats Away turns two years old this month and I wanted to mark the occasion with a few what-have-yous:
I was surprised and humbled when my friend Colby Sharp shared this video about the book:
The book received starred reviews from Kirkus and Publishers Weekly, but, hey, not everyone is a fan.
Illustrator Grant Snider and I made a mini book all about how Blue Floats Away was made.
I’ve been told Blue Floats Away makes a great Earth Day read aloud, so if you’d like to pick up a copy, you can head over here.
