If You Want to Find Golden written by Eileen Spinelli Paintings by Stacey Schueett

While searching the shelves for a book today, this one jumped out at me. I opened the first page and fell in.

Colour poems grace the pages as a boy and his mother journey through a city in one day. I love that the city is rich in multicultural images. I love that each colour resonates in the painting. No matter the colour, each page is filled with joy and energy. 

See what I mean in these snippets from the first page?

In each page the confluence of poetry and image come together in exquisite harmony.  

Some days I am deeply thankful for the beauty of picture books. Especially those that remind me of how beautiful my life around me here in my city is.
