The Valley of the Yellow Flowers by Christina Reza   
The Valley of the Yellow Flowers is the story of a young girl
named Shannon whose simple life takes an extraordinary
turn. When Shannon encounters something her parents
cannot imagine, she vows to show them that the
unbelievable is real. It takes a race against time for her to
realize that only those who can believe in magic, can ever
truly, see it!
Christina Reza,  author of The Valley of the Yellow Flowers
Christina is a wife, mother of two, and elementary school teacher in California's Inland Empire.  Her
life-long love of reading and story telling was eagerly shared when she became a mother.  Frequent
trips to the library introduced Christina and her children to the incredible world of children's books.  
Authors such as Don Freeman and Kevin Henkes were favorites that her children wanted to hear over
and over again.  However, it was celebrated author Jane Yolen's work that inspired Christina to try her
hand at writing.  The Valley of the Yellow Flowers is her first published work and was inspired by a
bedtime story she would tell her children.
