ABOUT THE BOOK

In this visually rich picture book, a girl discovers the joy of creativity, first on a walk through the city and ultimately within herself.

As Ronan and her mother spend an afternoon together, the girl notices a sparkling brightness--flowing in the notes of a street musician, blaring from billboards, and flying from dancers on stage. Why does she sometimes feel bright--and where could she find that brightness when she wants it? Curious, she experiments . . . until she discovers the magic can come from her, too, when she dances, draws, and paints. Sometimes It's Bright explores how being our most creative selves brings joy to us and to the world.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Annie Ruygt earned her BFA in Illustration from Cal State Fullerton. Before settling down in California and pursuing a career as a freelance artist, she spent some time traveling and playing gigs as a singer-songwriter; this helped her develop an ear for rhythm and rhyme that shows in her picture-book writing.
