Byrd Baylor lives in the Southwest and often writes of the desert. Her second-person prose poetry speaks to the reader, sharing wisdom, ceremony, and adventure as it connects you to the natural world. Her books are uniquely structured in a voice that is completely accessible, but is also profound and thought-provoking. With texts often paired with Peter Parnall's simple, yet multi-layered illustrations, Baylor shares her insight into the human-nature connection.
Whether used for a lyrical read-aloud or curriculum connections, Baylor's books are a sure thing.
