The author has made a lovely retelling of Gwen's life, including her struggles with disabilities and her perseverance. I love her quote, "I work with nature because it treats me equally". The book expresses Gwen's love for nature in beautiful watercolor illustration and text. We at Leelanau Books will be sharing the legacy of Gwen Frostic in a program that meets on Thursdays from 4-6 pm. Participants will create their own book of nature poetry and block prints after we read her book aloud and discuss samples of her work. Call Leelanau Books to sign up your young visitors today!
