I’m in Charge of Celebrations

written Byrd Baylor, illustrated by Peter Parnall

A desert dweller celebrates special experiences "to remember the rest of my life".

I cherish this book

The lyrical text puts you right in the middle of the author's special experiences and the illustrations provide support for the imagination. This book is such a marvelous way to encourage readers to become more open to and observant of the wonders all around them.

"I keep a notebook and I write the date and then I write about the celebration."

Dust Devil Day. Green Clouds Day. A Time of Falling Stars. This last celebration brought back special memories of an August night I enjoyed watching the Perseids with my daughter.
