Little Maya longs to find brilliant, beautiful, inspiring color in her world....but Maya's world, the Mojave Desert, seems to be filled with nothing but sand. With the help of a feathered friend, she searches everywhere to discover color in her world. In the brilliant purple of her mother's flowers, the cool green of a cactus, the hot pink sunset, and the shiny black of Papi's hair, Maya finally finds what she was looking for. The book's appealing narrative and bold illustrations encourage early readers to observe and explore, and to discover the colors in their own
