13 Stories about Ayana

In stock

A loving look at the ups and downs of being a preschooler in the big city from an award-winning author-illustrator.

Thirteen illustrated vignettes capture the wonder and humor of everyday life for a toddler named Ayana. Ayana visits a community garden with her father, gets her face painted at a block party, and has a playdate with her best friend Harris. In these beautifully observed moments, celebrated author-illustrator Amy Schwartz shows us how a young child experiences the warmth of family, friends, and neighbors.

A companion book to 13 Stories about Harris, these short, charming tales capture a young child’s view of the world with wit and honesty. With very short text supported by bright illustrations, this is an excellent storytime choice for young readers beginning to read on their own—or a great choice to share together with the ones you love.

Full-color illustrations were created with gouache and pen and ink.
