Claudia’s May Picks: Five Books by Cynthia Rylant

Cynthia Rylant is the author of more than one hundred books for children. The five books I picked for the lovely month of May celebrate our beautiful world -- a world that is filled with so many wonderful things and creatures: sparkling stars, birds flying through the blue sky, peaches growing on trees, blooming flowers, purring cats, joyful children, you and me. The writer works with illustrators like Nikki McClure and Tiphanie Beeke. The text and illustrations will nurture your heart and soul and let you rejoice in the beauty and goodness of life.
