It finally feels like spring is upon us! The weather is (slowly) getting warmer and the grass is finally a little bit greener. Over the weekend, many members of the Tufts community came together for Holi, a spring festival of colors observed by Hindus. Four out of the five of us authors ran into each other at this joyous celebration, covered in a myriad of lovely colors. We were all so happy to see each other in our colorful and vivid states. 

We were celebrating not just spring, but also the beauty of our Earth. We hope to capture similar feelings of beauty and happiness in our children's book. Speaking from my personal perspective, this book has certainly been one of the highlights of my semester and I feel so fortunate to be able to explore climate justice through the lens of children's literature and art.

Fittingly, today is also Earth Day. Happy Earth Day to you! We hope you continue to love the Earth and treat it with kindness and respect. Just think, what would Penguin do?
