With a text by Byrd Baylor and pictures by Peter Parnall, this delightful book will inspire you to create your own holidays. "Last year I gave myself one hundred and eight celebrations — besides the ones that they close school for," announces a young girl. She lives in the desert and just laughs when people suggeset that she might get lonely. How could she get lonely when there are so many things around her that catch her attention and fill her with wonder?
She keeps a notebook where she records special days that she wants to remember for the rest of her life. She describes what happened on Dust Devil Day, Rainbow Celebration Day, Green Cloud Day, Coyote Day, and The Time of Falling Stars. Her very own New Year Celebration comes in the spring when her favorite cactus blooms and "makes me think I ought to bloom myself"; she spends a day "admiring things."
