Ten Beautiful Things

Coming January 12, 2021. Preorder today!

By: Molly Beth Griffin / Illustrated by: Maribel Lechuga

There's nothing beautiful here.

Lily doesn't want to live in Iowa with Gran. Iowa is a long car ride away, and Lily feels terrible, all empty inside. Even Gran's favorite car game—name ten beautiful things—is useless. There's nothing beautiful in the April slush and cloudy sky.

But beauty is hiding where Lily least expects it: the smell of spring mud, a cloud shaped like a swan, a dilapidated barn. After a furious rainstorm, Lily discovers the tenth and most beautiful thing of all: Gran and their love for each other.

This heartfelt journey through the heartland captures the struggle to navigate change and loss, and the comfort found in mindful attention to the present.
