Here and Now

by Julia Denos, illustrated by E. B. Goodale
September 2020 – Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (US)

Explore identity and connection, inspire curiosity, and prompt engaging discussions about the here and now.

Here and now, you may be reading a book. But somewhere, a phone is ringing, a baby is growing, and the earth is spinning. Even you are changing, growing, becoming—doing remarkable work in unseen ways.

At turns wise and playful, HERE AND NOW makes mindfulness and meditation accessible to a young audience. Explore the incredible possibilities of our universe and the part we play in it, right at home.

Julia Denos is also the author-illustrator of Swatch: The Girl Who Loved Color, her author-illustrator debut, which was a 2016 ALA Notable selection.
