This eclectic picture book, which creatively blends poetry with striking paintings, is the product of a 10-year collaboration between a mother and daughter. Each original poem in this collection is matched with a classic work of art that will delight both children and adults. Beautifully reproduced examples of realism, impressionism, expressionism, pop, folk, and abstract art are a wonderful accompaniment to poetry that offers simple truths and reveals a moving mother-daughter relationship.
