"I'm New at Being Old" is a picture book for women. Offering wit, whimsy and vibrantly fanciful art, Lucy Rose Fischer captures the essence of what it feels like to be "new at being old." At first, she wonders: Is she ready for this journey toward an "alien universe"? She frets about what might happen to herthe "breakdown of movable parts" and, possibly, the "unraveling of my mind." But she also celebrates her vitality, creativity, and "richness of years." She comes to understand that she is joining a burgeoning sisterhood and that her new life is just beginning. Women of the Baby Boom generation will recognize themselves in "I'm New at Being Old" and draw inspiration and courage from this honest and engaging book.
