    Book Description:

    From Children’s Literature Legacy Award winner Nikki Grimes and highly-acclaimed illustrator Wendell Minor comes a stunning picture book about the beauty of the natural world and finding a new place to call home.

    The beauty of the natural world is just waiting to be discovered …

    When Jayden touches down in New Mexico, he’s uncertain how this place could ever be home. But if he takes a walk outside, he just might find something glorious.

    Flowers in bright shades …
    Birds and lizards and turtles, all with a story to tell …
    Red rock pillars towering in the distance …
    Turquoise sky as far as the eye can see …

    Perhaps this place could be home after all.

    Gorgeously poetic and visually stunning, this story from acclaimed creators Nikki Grimes and Wendell Minor celebrates the beauty of the Southwest as a young boy sees it for the very first time.
