Have you ever had your head in clouds and seen the world as if you were a bird? Perhaps you've looked out the window of an airplane and stared at the world below you. Or, maybe you've hiked to the top of a tall mountain and stopped to look around.
For over twenty years, debut children's picture book author, Mike Brown (Mr. B) has routinely had his head in the clouds, while taking photos from a helicopter, as an aerial photographer. He has been on thousands of photo flights, and to this day, there's not been one where he hasn't found himself in awe of the beauty below him.
Mr. B has seen cities being built, farms being grown, and trains chugging along. He has glided alongside whales migrating, dolphins jumping, wild horses stampeding, and red hawks soaring. He's fluttered over fields of wildflowers that are so vibrant they look like a water-color painting - and hovered over Saguaros so mighty and tall they look like toy soldiers marching up a mountain.
The author notes, "This book illustrates some of the most beautiful sights I've seen during my adventures of taking photographs from a helicopter. The world is indeed a beautiful place when your head is in the clouds. This book is dedicated to my granddaughter, Kali, the most beautiful sight of all."
