Almond is a breathtaking and evocative story about finding your talent from Caldecott Medalist Allen Say.

Everything changes for Almond Biggs when a new girl comes to school. The New Girl can play "The Flight of the Bumblebee" fast fast fast on her violin. And every day Almond sits and listens. Lost in the music, Almond wonders if she has her own unique gift. One special day, as Almond is watching the crows, circling and twirling in the wind, she realizes that she too can spread her wings and discovers the magic to being happy inside and out.

Allen Say's luminous artwork and emotionally powerful story help children discover the wondrous gift of being who they are.
