About the Author:

Smelling Sunshine draws upon her childhood experience of hanging laundry with her mother in a southern California backyard scented with citrus trees and filled with birdsong. Her images, which combine paint and paper, are influenced by her work as an abstract painter, graphic designer, and scientific illustrator. In addition to making art, it has been her privilege and inspiration to teach art and develop art curriculum. She lives with her husband and sons in the San Francisco Bay area where she and her family continue the clothesline laundry tradition.

From Booklist:

Anderson elevates and celebrates the mundane, emphasizing the special moments that occur between parent and child during the ordinary task of laundry. Her lyrical text focuses on the sensory aspects of line-dried clothing: “On washing day, / I get my laundry ready / for the warm air, / sweet and spicy.” Birds laugh and insects float by, children play hide-and-seek in the hanging clothes, and bright sunshine finishes the job. Then it’s home to sort, fold, and stack, and finally off to bed with sheets that smell of sunshine. The brightly colored mixed-media illustrations depict a variety of families, cultures, and distinctive fabric patterns. No Laundromats or labor-saving devices are depicted, but everyone seems to be having a good time, including those who are outside, washing in a stream. For better or worse, the text specifically addresses “Mommy and me,” but several illustrations depict short-haired individuals dressed ambiguously in pants. A unique way to look at a common task through a global lens. Preschool-Grade 1. --Kay Weisman
