Hardcover

Price: $19.99

Overview

The extraordinarily told, one-of-a-kind story of legendary author and children’s book icon Ruth Krauss

Born
a baby
late at night
there’s no parade
just crashing rain

She listens listens
writes and draws
stitches pages
sews a book
She finds another way
to tell a tale

This unique picture book biography provides a mesmerizing look at the life of children’s writer Ruth Krauss (1901-1993), best known for books such as The Carrot Seed, A Hole is to Dig, and A Very Special House. With an imaginative, spontaneous text from Carter Higgins that pays homage to Krauss’s distinctive voice, and Isabelle Arsenault’s exquisite illustrations that evoke a childlike sense of wonder, A Story Is to Share is a tribute to storytelling and creativity of all kinds.
