Bookshop Santa Cruz is delighted to welcome award-winning illustrator (and staff favorite) Christian Robinson for a reading and signing of his new picture book, Just in Case You Want to Fly, written by Julie Fogliano.
The creators of the award-winning When's My Birthday? team up again to create an inspirational book for anyone—parent or child—looking for support when facing a new challenge.
just in case you want to fly
here's some wind
and here's the sky
here's a feather
here's up high
and here's a wing from a butterfly
This tender, contemplative picture book is about growing up. It's about parents giving their children the gifts, no matter how quiet or small, to succeed and to navigate the world on their own. And it's about the connection that binds a parent and child...because no matter how far they fly or who they become, they will always have home.
Christian Robinson is an acclaimed illustrator of children's books, including Gaston by Kelly di Puchhio and the New York Times bestseller Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Peña, which won the Newbery Medal as well as a Caldecott Honor.
