The extraordinarily told, one-of-a-kind story of legendary author and children’s book icon Ruth Krauss


a baby

late at night

there’s no parade

just crashing rain


She listens listens

writes and draws

stitches pages

sews a book

She finds another way

to tell a tale


This unique picture book biography provides a mesmerizing look at the life of children’s writer Ruth Krauss (1901–1993), best known for books such as The Carrot Seed, A Hole is to Dig, and A Very Special House. With an imaginative, spontaneous text from Carter Higgins that pays homage to Krauss’s distinctive voice, and Isabelle Arsenault’s exquisite illustrations that evoke a childlike sense of wonder, A Story Is to Share is a tribute to storytelling and creativity of all kinds.
