World famous artist, female entrepreneur, one of the "Rosies" during WWII, and of course advocate for the natural world, Michigan's Gwen Frostic did all of this while suffering from a cerebral palsy-like illness that made it harder to use her hands. She lived and worked to a very old age, and also left millions to Western Michigan University. I've read this picture book half a dozen times now, and also watched it read to a group of eager elementary school children. An inspiring debut by former Ann Arbor resident Lindsey McDivitt. The illustrations from Eileen Ryan Ewen deserve some extra study as well. If you go to Meijer Gardens, make sure you check out the shade garden named in Frostic's honor.— From Carla's Picks
