Sue's Sky
by Lulu Buck




As Sue walks to school, she admires the blue sky. On the playground, she asks her friends one at a time, “Isn’t the blue sky beautiful today?” Much to her surprise, each friend sees the sky as a different color, depending on where they are from. But some other kids think this is weird. Will this change the way Sue sees her friends and the sky?

Sue’s Sky uses the gentle metaphor of the sky to encourage young readers to accept others’ perspectives of the world around them.


Lulu Buck has been a public educator for twenty-three years and is currently the Coordinator of Educational Equity and Family Engagement for St Vrain Valley School District.

Previously, Lulu was an English Language Development and World Language Senior Consultant for the Office of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education, and the Standards and Instructional Support Office at the Colorado Department of Education. She was also the CDE’s Coordinator for the Colorado Seal of Biliteracy for High School Diplomas and Dual Language Education. Lulu was most passionate about her role as a state trainer for cultural responsiveness and equity for districts and schools, through which she had the honor of training thirty-eight Colorado school districts. She also taught English and Spanish for ten years in public secondary schools.

In 2009, she was awarded Teacher of the Year through the Colorado Congress for Foreign Language Teachers, and most recently “A Friend of the Profession” by SWCOLT. Sue’s Sky is her first book. She lives in Colorado with her two sons and their dogs.
