Rose’s Summer of Arts & Dreams

Balboa Press 2016

Over a summer in New York City, 9-year-old Rose changes the way she thinks about herself by making hopeful art.
Aunt Olive visits with Rose and shares creative ideas to boost Rose’s big dreams. 

Rose’s Summer of Arts & Dreams offers hope and encouragement by inspiring children to love who they are through art making. 

The co-founders of Arts & Dreams, Laura Baran and Patricia Geremia, have written their first book. Featuring Laura’s hand-painted illustrations that are based on photographs by Patricia, this is a heartwarming story with a powerful message of transformation. Recommended ages 7-12.
