Emily’s Blue Period
A Neal Porter Book. Illustrations by Lisa Brown
Emily wants to be an artist. She likes painting and loves the way artists like Pablo Picasso mixed things up. Emily’s life is a little mixed up right now. Her dad doesn’t live at home anymore, and it feels like everything around her is changing. “When Picasso was sad for a while,” says Emily, “he only painted in blue. And now I am in my blue period.” It might last quite some time. Age Range: 4 – 7 years, published by Roaring Brook Press / Macmillan.
