Where the Board Books Are,
October 2021

“"I received these two beautiful board books from Amicus Publishing and I'm still oohing and aahing over both of them! With incredibly precise, rhythmic text, reading Wildflowers Grow and Butterflies Soar is like singing a song. The illustrations are close-up and detailed and the color pallet throughout both board books portrays a vibrance in nature that every child will want to absorb. Here's an excerpt from Wildflowers Grow: "Down, down, deep. Little seeds asleep. Drop, drop, drip. Waking sip by sip." Below are two illustrations from Wildflowers Grow. In Butterflies Soar, I love how the first page is full of caterpillars inching along blades of grass. Children will quickly get a sense of how lively and colorful nature is! The caterpillars are also very busy---they munch, they crunch, they knit and weave, and they change every day until...a butterfly appears!" ”—Kelsey Marie Paff

Foreword Reviews - Wildflowers Grow,
March 2022

“Wildflowers don’t just happen, as is revealed in this bright, delight-filled board book about the interconnectedness, and interdependency, of nature’s tiniest features. Indeed, a field blanketed with poppies and daisies and heather begins somewhere whose loveliness is less obvious: in underground pockets of soil, around which creatures burrow and stir. From there, seeds have to fight their way toward the light, where little, smiling beings, from mice to bees, meet them and help them along. The eventual result is a triumph of color. ”—Michelle Anne Schingler
