About Patrice Barton
My artistic talents were first discovered at the age of three, when I was found creating a mural on the dining room wall with a pastry brush and a can of Crisco. Although the work itself was never fully appreciated by my parents, my interest in art was. They quickly gave me a better canvas and more appropriate supplies. My passion for art grew, and I earned a BFA in studio art from the University of Texas in Austin, where I live now with my husband, son and good dog Archer.
My clients include Alfred A. Knopf, G.P. Putnam's Sons, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Harper Collins, Atheneum, Dial, Roaring Brook Press, Farrar, Straus and Giroux Books for Young Readers, Scholastic Book Club, Ideals Children's Books, Ladybug Magazine, Clubhouse Jr. Magazine, Highlights, Highlights High Five, and more.

Pup is pulling, Maisie is pushing, and Jonah is looking and listening as the three of them set off on their daily dog walk.

Differences are what brings richness to the everyday in gorgeous homage to the wonders of the world around us—and the worlds we can create—if only we stop to look and listen.

What does a toddler say when she drops her sunglasses in the sand? "Uh-Oh!"
What does she say when a seagull lands on her sandcastle? "Uh-Oh!"
What does she say when she finds a crab in her pail? "Uh-Oh!"
And what does she say when a BIG wave is coming? That's the biggest "Uh-Oh!" of all!
This nearly wordless story of toddler adventure perfectly captures the dynamics between the youngest friends and the sheer pleasure of that favorite toddler word: Uh-Oh!
Tired little eyes,
ready now for bed,
Tired little everything,

Shhh . . .
Except Rosie. Rosie isn't fast, or loud, or fancy, but she's tired of hearing that Violet is the best.
When their class grows pea plants, Rosie's and Violet's are the first to sprout! But Violet's is a little taller. So Rosie pushes some soil over Violet's sprout to slow it down. And for a moment, Rosie's plant is the best—but she feels terrible. And she feels even worse when she learns that Violet has the chicken pox.
So for the next two weeks, Rosie waters her plant—and Violet's too. She turns them in the sun, and sings them quiet growing songs. And her teacher says that Rosie is the best gardener she's ever had. Definitely the best.
This empathetic story captures every child's desire to be noticed and praised, and the subtle competitions that go on in a classroom. It's a book to swell every shy child's heart.
