Spring Is for Strawberries Book Launch

April 16, 2023 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Free

For author Katherine Pryor, this book was a love letter to local food & family farms, as well as a way to help kids begin to understand the concept of eating with the seasons. The publisher took the highly unusual step of releasing the book in hardcover and paperback simultaneously to better suit the budgets of schools and non-profits who would like to use it in nutrition education and outreach efforts.

Illustrator Polina Gortman sketched her illustrations directly from and inspired by WA farms, including First Light Farms (https://eatlocalfirst.org/listing/first-light-farm-learning-center/) in Carnation and Serres Farm (https://eatlocalfirst.org/listing/serres-farm/) in Redmond.

Kirkus Reviews called it:
“A delightful blend of friendship, fresh food, melodious language, and luscious illustrations.”

Publishers Weekly said:
“A family farm and a city farmer’s market are the backdrops for a journey through the seasons—and the stages of a new friendship—in this thoughtful look at nature’s bounty.”
