About the Book

Leo, a small boy with wild yellow hair, feels trapped in his monochromatic yellow world. He dreams of escaping to a blue world, and he embarks on a quest to get there. The blue world is not to be discovered, but Leo meets a wise Lady who helps him learn an important lesson: What we see is really a reflection of our own inner attitudes. This new awareness empowers Leo to return home and change his life right there.

Current research highlights the connection between children's creativity and self-esteem. When Leo discovers his inner creative resources, he is finally able to be present, active and fulfilled in his life.

This is a book that all of us will need someday if not now.

About the Author

"As an educator and as a parent, I know how adults are asked to read the same picture book over and over again. Leo was conceived to offer meaning and humor to young children and the adults who read with them."
