Rose’s Summer of Arts & Dreams

Balboa Press 2016

Over a summer in New York City, a 9 year old girl named Rose changes the way she thinks about herself by making hopeful art.
Her Aunt Olive visits with creative ideas to help boost Rose’s big dreams. 

Rose’s Summer of Arts & Dreams offers children a sense of hope and encouragement by inspiring them to love who they are through art making. 

The co-founders of Arts & Dreams, Laura Baran and Patricia Geremia, have written their first book for children. Featuring Laura’s hand-painted illustrations that are based on photographs by Patricia, this is a heartwarming story with a powerful message of transformation. Recommended ages 7-12.
