In this companion to the bestselling Picture a Tree, Barbara Reid has us look up . . . way up

Wherever we may be, we share the same sky. But every hour, every day, every season, whether in the city or the forest, it is different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plasticine Dreams! Everything I hoped for and more! The text is sweet, simple, and thought provoking leading to many points of questioning and engagement with the reader. The illustrations...breathtaking! The amount of detail that Barbara Reid puts into all of her plasticine works of art is astounding! Check out the end papers!! Full of even more plasticine dreams! We loved Picture a Tree and this new title complements it exquisitely. Picture a Sky is a perfect book from preschool to grade two and should be in your home or classroom to inspire imagination and creativity!

Praise for Picture the Sky

 "In this aesthetically pleasing homage, Reid obliges young readers to contemplate the sky in all its not-always-blue expansive magnificence." - Kirkus

* "A wonderfully open-ended picture book for reading aloud, it's sure to lead children outdoors, or at least to the nearest window." - Booklist, starred review
