I first met Barb Kerley when we were both participating at the Humboldt County Author Festival, many eons ago. She is a whiz with nonfiction biographies (one of my favorites of hers is What To Do About Alice?: How Alice Roosevelt Broke the Rules, Charmed the World, and Drove Her Father Teddy Crazy!, charmingly illustrated by Seattle artist, Edwin Fotheringham).
Her latest book has rightfully earned a star from Kirkus: “A stirring invitation to leap, dive, soar, plunge and thrill to the natural world’s wonders and glories.”
Gorgeous photographs accompany Barb’s meditations on how something as simple as splashing in a puddle can plant a seed for a child’s career/lifelong passion.
I personally can’t wait to read this to my little granddaughter! It will be released on March 12, so ask for it at your local indie bookstore!
Oooo! Just the title gives me shivers. Can’t wait to read it.
