We saw When I Close My Eyes at the 2011 Harlem Book Fair and were blown away by the warm and lyrical text. "When I close my eyes, there is so much to see. It opens up a whole new world to me. I have so much fun and oh how time flies.. to come from out of the clouds, I just open my eyes." The illustrations are fabulous. We love this book; you will too! Our only issue: As of this writing the book was not available in hard cover.
