--This book tells the story in both English & Spanish simultaneously--

Maya longs to find brilliant, beautiful color in her world. But when the wind blows, desert sand covers everything, and turns her whole neighborhood the color of dust.

With the help of a feathered friend, Maya searches high and low to find the colors in her world. And she does—in the vibrant purple of her Mama’s flowers, the juicy green of a prickly cactus, the hot pink clouds at sunset, and the shiny black of her Papi’s hair.

As they follow Maya’s search for all the colors of the rainbow, little readers will be inspired to look around and ask themselves, where can I find the colors in my world?

The 2008 Pura Belpré Illustrator Honor Award Winner, My Colors, My World was the first book that Maya both wrote and illustrated.

About the Author

In 1994, at Maya’s first art opening in San Francisco, she met Harriet Rohmer, the original founder of Children’s Book Press (now an imprint of Lee&Low Books). When Harriet asked her if she was interested in making art for a children’s book, she felt as though she had come home. But home to a place she never knew existed. Since then she has created art for over 20 children’s books and written 3 of those including her latest book, CALL ME TREE, listed as one of the Best Picture Books of 2014 that Celebrate Diversity by Kirkus. Her children’s book creations also led her to work in schools throughout the country and eventually co-found her own press with her partner, Matthew. She also loves to teach others everything she knows about creating children’s books through her online school and her e-course, The Heart of It: Creating Children’s Books that Matter
