As I continue to write about 100 Women Picture Book Artists
Many are well-known and and come to mind quickly, others have one or two books out and we want to celebrate and encourage newcomers to the field.
All Around Us
by Xelena González illustrated by Adriana M. Garcia, Cinco Puntos Press
Adriana M Garcia, an award-winning artist, muralist, and scenic designer was born and raised on the west-side of San Antonio. She received her BFA From Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and studied fine arts in Valencia, Spain.
Circles are all around us. We just have to look for them. Sometimes they exist in the most unusual places.
A transcendent, perfectly gorgeous book, as magical as childhood feels in its best times. Rich, warm, comforting words and images to hold closely in your mind.
―Naomi Shihab Nye
