Format: Paperback
This is a wonderfully written book about a Native American woman who goes out into the desert and observes the wonders and beauty of nature around her. She records what she finds fascinating and creates her OWN holidays or celebrations. One day she may observe a green cloud and call it Green Cloud Day. On another day, she may observe a shooting star and call it Star Day. She gets outside of herself and observes wonderous things that may only be seen once in a lifetime!

Format: Paperback
This book was read to us in a class. I found it to be an excellent book. The author sends a deep message to children and adults as well. The message that I perceived, was that you create your own happiness, find something especial in everything you see or touch, make your own celebrations and you will never feel lonely.

This book is my favorite children's book. I teacher fifth grade and use it with all of my classes. Baylor uses subtle humor sparse words that reach across age boundries. My reading this book always fosters a greater appreciation of the world's small wonders.

A 5 Star Celebration of Literacy and Imagination 9 Sept. 2002
By Wendy Power - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I use this book in the beginning of each school year with my fifth grade students. It always leads to great discussions about what is important to them and leads into interesting writer's notebook entries. The book is a great tool for inferencing, noticing details, and celebrating the little events in our lives that make us who we are. A good book to use when teaching about differences that make each of us unique and how we all have our own set of priorities.

An amazing book 16 Jan. 2002
By Chan McDermott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I stumbled upon this book recently and, as an avid reader of children's literature, believe it is one of the most amazing books I have seen -- for readers of all ages. It is lyrical, humorous and quiet. The illustrations are spare--and that's all that's needed. Life in the desert is depicted beautifully. I felt like the book was speaking me, calling me to a more mindful way of life. I plan to buy it as gifts for all my friends this year, no matter their age.

Enchanting like the desert with subtle humor and imagination 4 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My husband and I read to our grandchildren a lot and have appreciated the good literature by Byrd Baylor. This is the first of her books we bought and this one is our favorite. It demonstrates that we do not need to be entertained if we will only BE QUIET and see what is going on around us. The children are appreciating the joy and adventure of reading. Thanks Byrd Baylor.
