Devon Holzwarth grew up in Panama with the jungle as her garden and parrots and iguanas as pets.
Devon earned her BFA in 2000 from the Rhode Island School of Design, focusing on screen printing and painting. Childhood memories and her collection of vintage children’s books strongly inspire her work.
She currently lives in Aachen, Germany, with her husband, two kids, and beloved old hound dog.
Real families everywhere will appreciate the book’s encouragement and acknowledgement that love is what ties them together.
A must-have for children’s picture-book collections, this is a delightful celebration of what makes a family…. Holzwarth beautifully renders the characters in a variety of hues, making the diversity showcased throughout one of the book’s defining features and adding to the emotional punch of the story. All of the families look different, but the love they share makes them the same. Absolutely recommended for all children’s collections and sure to be a storytime winner.
