Review quote

"Realistically rendered animals are foregrounded, as on a stage, while Rothko-like backgrounds provide an aura of fantasy. The vibrant palette, strong contrast between warm and cool tones and sophisticated layering of colors effectively convey the splendor of nature." --www.KirkusReviews.com "Tiitinen creates a hopeful atmosphere with soulful animals set against compositions of blazing fire and cool earth tones." --"Publishers Weekly" (March 19, 2012) "A gentle, thoughtful tale of working together and of the miracles of nature, "Drops of Life" is also gorgeously decorated with sweeping, dramatic water-colored pages." --Lee Littlewood with Creators Syndicate "subtle and soothing"--"Milwaukee Journal Sentinel" "This book teaches children not only an appreciation for nature, but that when we work together we can accomplish much more"--"One Mama's Daily Drama" blog "A great introduction to the care of the Earth." --"The Daytona Beach News-Journal" "[illustrator] Nikolai Tiitinen combines bright and vibrant colors with rich, earthy tones. The blended backgrounds emphasize the fantastic nature of the characters and plot." --Once Upon a Book blogshow more
