When Jayden and his parents move from New York to New Mexico, he is devastated to leave the city behind. Where are the skyscrapers, the fire escapes, and the traffic? Instead, Jayden finds an endless sky, a bird’s song, and a rainbow of flowers. As he learns to appreciate the natural beauty around him, he finds a new place to call home.
Children’s Literature Legacy Award-winner Nikki Grimes and acclaimed illustrator Wendell Minor draw readers into the natural world with this lyrical story of finding beauty wherever you are.
