A visual thinker, it's no wonder LAUREL THOMPSON became an artist. She grew up in Oregon, exploring her fascination with art, dance, and nature. This is Laurel's first fully illustrated book, and she feels honored to be helping bring such an important story to life. Whether you think in pictures or not, Laurel hopes that you too will see the particular shade of pink this book calls attention to. See more of Laurel’s art here.
