The extraordinarily told, one-of-a-kind story of legendary author and children’s book icon Ruth Krauss

Born a baby late at night

There’s no parade just crashing rain

She listens listens writes and draws

stitches pages sews a book

She finds another way to tell a tale

This unique picture book biography provides a mesmerizing look at the life of children’s writer Ruth Krauss (1901–1993), best known for books such as The Carrot Seed, A Hole is to Dig, and A Very Special House.

With an imaginative, spontaneous text from Carter Higgins that pays homage to Krauss’s distinctive voice, and Isabelle Arsenault’s exquisite illustrations that evoke a childlike sense of wonder, A Story Is to Share is a tribute to storytelling and creativity of all kinds.
