Emily's Blue Period by Cathleen DalyEmily 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.
't live together anymore . . . During the blue period, tones are gray and black and blue, but the final coloring collage invites children to find all the parts of Emily's life . . . Artful. Booklist *This is a heartfelt, relatable, and even sometimes funny picture book.

A lovely, contemplative picture book. School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW A girl adjusts to her parents'
's artwork . . . A worthwhile, idiosyncratic demonstration of a specific artist's relevance to a young child. Kirkus Reviews Daly offers a picture book with a middle-grade sensibility, examining the way that creating art can help dispel distress. Publishers Weekly'
