About Southwest Sunrise:

When Jayden touches down in New Mexico, he's uncertain how this place could ever be home. But if he takes a walk outside, he just might find something glorious: the beauty of the natural world just waitint to be discovered.

Flowers in bright shades . . . 
Birds and lizards and turtles, all with a story to tell . . . 
Red rock pillars towering in the distance . . . 
Turquoise sky as far as the eye can see . . . 

Perhaps this place could be home after all. 

Gorgeously poetic and visually stunning, this story from acclaimed creators Nikki Grimes and Wendell Minor celebrates the beauty of the Southwest as a young boy sees it for the very first time.
