Everywhere, Wonder

Everywhere Wonder Book
Every conference participant will receive a copy of the children's book, Everywhere, Wonder, the book that inspired many of this year's workshops!

Open your eyes and open your window and let your story out into the world. It is a little gift from you to me.”

In this heartfelt picture book, readers are taken on a stunning journey into the imagination of a young boy—who explores everything from the pyramids of Egypt to a dusty footprint on the moon—and then back out again to the wonderful world right in front of him. From a lost balloon to an endless road, there are stories to discover, to dream about, and to share.

Everywhere, Wonder explores the wonder in the world, while encouraging young minds to discover the extraordinary in the ordinary, and creatively share their stories with others.
