If I Was the Sunshine

Saturday, May 18 . 10:30am

Through clever, thought-provoking verse and warmly evocative art,
NYT-bestselling storytellers Fogliano and Long explore the awe-inspiring nature of
relationships, love, and connection in this breathtaking picture book.

"If I was the sunshine/ and you were the day/ I'd call you hello!/ and you'd call me stay," begins this playful poetic exploration of relationships and the natural world.

Julie Fogliano is the New York Times bestselling author of And Then It's Spring and If You Want to See a Whale as well as the poetry collection When Green Becomes Tomatoes and the picture books If I Was the Sunshine, When's My Birthday, and My Best Friend. Recipient of the 2013 the Ezra Jack Keats award, her books have been translated into more than ten languages. Julie lives in the Hudson Valley with her husband and three children. When she is not folding laundry or wondering what to make for dinner, she is staring out the window waiting for a book idea to fly by.
