KINDERGARTEN HAT cover reveal!

I am thrilled to reveal the wonderful cover created by illustrator Geraldine Rodriguez for KINDERGARTEN HAT, my upcoming picture book. KINDERGARTEN HAT will be published by Little Bee Books on May 26th!

Kindergarten teacher Judy Baccei and first-day student, 2001

The “seed” for this story was planted many years ago. My son’s kindergarten teacher wore a huge flowered hat on the first day of school so her students could find her as they got off the bus.

When the book releases, I’m hoping fans and friends will join nervous Carlos on his first-day-of-kindergarten journey. Geraldine’s interior art is as fabulous as the cover!

    What a beautiful tribute to a fabulous educator. Judy continues to be an inspiration to children and their parents. I am so lucky and grateful to call her friend and family, and am thrilled that the joy and understanding she imparted to hundreds of children is now immortalized in this lovely book.
