Emily's Blue Period
by Cathleen Daly and Illustrated by Lisa Brown
Emily wants to be an artist. She likes painting and loves the way artists like Pablo Picasso mixed things up.
Emily's life is a little mixed up right now. Her dad doesn't live at home anymore, and it feels like everything around her is changing.
“When Picasso was sad for a while,” says Emily, “he only painted in blue. And now I am in my blue period.”
It might last quite some time.
