What Sound Is Morning?

My next picture book is out soon from Chronicle Books! It's a brightly illustrated poem of morning sounds and a reminder to slow down and LISTEN. One sound I've noticed lately is birds singing at sunrise. They seem louder without the usual commuter traffic. It's a small joy in a difficult time.

WHAT SOUND IS MORNING? will be published on May 12. You can pre-order it now wherever you get your books, and signed copies are available from my local bookstore, Watermark. It's a perfect companion to my first children's book, WHAT COLOR IS NIGHT?
