A gentle lullaby celebrating the abundant nature of the East Coast, from the illustrator of Wildflower and The Book of Selkie.
If you could be anything, what would you be?
I'd be a tall ship, racing fast on the sea
I'd fill up my sails with the salty cool breeze
If I could be anything. If it were up to me.
This lyrical lullaby from educator and musician Jen Britton, with illustrations by celebrated artist Briana Corr Scott (Mermaid Lullaby, Wildflower) asks young readers, If you could be anything, what would you be? Responses run the gamut from lupins to sea glass to a lighthouse shining bright to the pull of the tides, celebrating the abundant natural and cultural landscapes of the East Coast.
With gentle, rhyming text and dreamy oil illustrations, If You Could Be Anything is the perfect story to send little ones off to dreamland, and older ones off on new adventures.
Includes informative, illustrated backmatter.
