About the Author

Maya Gonzalez is an award-winning children's book artist, author, activist and progressive educator. Their work addresses systemic inequity in relation to race/ethnicity, sexism, and cissexism using children's books as radical agents of change and healing, both personally and culturally. Gonzalez co-founded Reflection Press, a POC, queer and trans owned independent publishing house that uses holistic, nature-based, and anti-oppression frameworks in their books and materials for kids and grown-ups. They are also the creator of the Gender Wheel, a tool to express the dynamic, infinite and inclusive reality of gender, and provides lectures and workshops to educators, parents and caregivers.

"[Gonzalez's] paintings are big and bold, fanciful and exuberant, and should inspire kids to look for the colors in their world, too." -- San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

"The intensely colored paintings [feature] some touches of magical realism. . . this book can jump-start the world of imagination." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The exaggerated facial features of both Maya and her feathered friend capture the contentment they find through enjoying the beauty of their world... Recommended for public libraries and bookstores." -- Críticas

"Gonzalez has created kid-friendly, yet sophisticated compositions." -- Foreword Reviews

"[A] powerful portrayal of a Latino child, her family, and her immediate environment, and an engaging way to introduce young children to basic concepts." -- Multicultural Review
