Summary
  • "A personally inspired poem that celebrates the trials and triumphs of unconditional love"--
  • "In this personal poem, Young explores how love impacts our lives. Using elements of nature, he takes readers through water, earth, fire, and wind in relation to love. Each line of text flows naturally into the content of the next page. The images are stunning, with a mix of photography, cut paper, and calligraphy. Vibrant colors of earth tones will appeal to readers' eyes. Some of the pages unfold in unique ways to support the narrative. The illustrations also offer various perspectives; the art for "I'll dream you a vision of towering trees" is cut paper rising toward photographs of tree tops to give the effect of tree trunks stretching to the sky. The author's note is an important piece of this book because it tells the backstory of the poem's creation. It reveals how conversation, writing, art, and collaboration can be a healing process when faced with loss" --
