"This book gave me the reminder I need--that even in a city of concrete, we can all find ways to connect with plants and get our hands dirty. For me, a New Yorker, tree-hugger, people-person, and art-appreciator, this book is everything I love, all in one."
- Julia Rothman, illustrator of the Scratch column, The New York Times
"Searching for Sunshine is an environmental delight. It's a reminder of the interconnectedness of the land and all living organisms on earth--and the beauty of exploring our own connections to what made us fall in love with all that Mother Earth has to offer."
- Leah Thomas, author of The Intersectional Environmentalist
"Charming collection...vibrant illustrations splashed on every page....There is much to savor in this collection of conversations about the power of plants and how they connect us."
