Impromptu Tribute to Sally Ride from Children’s Book Illustrator Micah Player
Our friends at Chronicle Books shared this sweet, simple illustration by Micah Player, author and illustrator of Chloe, Instead created in honor of the passing of astronaut Sally Ride. The image features the character Lately, Lily an adventurous young girl who travels the world with her family. Her appreciation for Sally Ride’s boundary-breaking life is shared by many, especially the legions of young girls she inspired to study science and reach for the stars.
I hope Micah’s image made you smile and reflect on Ms. Ride’s remarkable legacy. Thanks to Chronicle Books and Micah Player for sharing this with us.
