Maya longs to find brilliant, beautiful color in her world. But when the wind blows, desert sand covers everything and turns her whole neighborhood the color of dust. With the help of a feathered friend, Maya searches high and low to find the colors in her world. And she does―in the vibrant purple of her Mama’s flowers, the juicy green of a prickly cactus, the hot pink clouds at sunset, and the shiny black of her Papi’s hair. This book is bilingual (English and Spanish).
