The seconds that count in catching the bus;
The idyllic hours that slip by so quickly during a perfect day on the lake;
The summer days that disappear into blissful happiness . . .
Sarah Jacoby's debut picture book as an author and illustrator is as elegant as a poem and as perfectly paced as a mystery.
This beautiful picture books follows an unassuming narrator through a meditation on time through the course of a single day. Inviting comparisons to Virginia Lee Burton and Margaret Wise Brown, this book's musings on time are at once simple, peaceful, and profound—the work of a truly genius picture book maker.
About the Author
I draw pictures and write books for a living. Some of those pictures are for children's books, some are for galleries and a few are for bedroom walls. I've contributed to books about illustration and have shown art internationally and throughout the United States. I've created work for folks like The New York Times.
