Here and There
Tamara Ellis Smith, illustrated by Evelyn Daviddi
A young boy, Ivan, experiences the early stages of his parents' separation and finds hope in the beauty and music of nature. This tale of personal growth will provide a much-needed mirror for children in times of change - and an important reminder for all that there's beauty everywhere you look.
Tamara Ellis Smith grew up in a lot of different states. But no matter where she lived, she enjoyed spending time reading in the woods. She studied at Vermont College of Fine Arts and is the author of Another Kind of Hurricane, one of Bank Street's Best Books of the Year 2015. She currently resides in Vermont with her husband and four children. Evelyn Daviddi was born in Capri Modena, Italy. At age seven, she decided to become an artist, and she has done exactly that! She studied at the European Institute of Design in Milan and has illustrated over fifteen books - now including Here and There.
