And here we are, it’s Friday! 🙃 Hope everyone has a great weekend! ——————-
In this post I’m just playing around. I’m getting ready to do a finished illustration for my book dummy and thought I’d do some character tests before diving in on the finish this weekend! Side note: the chubby-ish kid to the left makes me want to do a children’s book based on Biggie Smalls... not sure how appropriate that would be but maybe it has to do with rap or something along those lines...🤔🤷🏾‍♀️ #toomanyideas #random

Had a fun time reading my book, Cubs Wish, to all the children and Pretend City in Irvine. I love seeing the adult faces that were so into the story as well as the sweet children’s Wide eyes. This is such an incredible place for the kids to play. I wish I had something like this when I was younger. Thank you to the staff at pretend city for your kindness and the wonderful experience!

"We love reading! We especially love reading books with positive messages, so we were excited when #misterflibber asked to send us a book. This book is a good reminder to kids (and parents) that not everything has to be perfect at all times. Sometimes we just need to sit back, relax and drink some cocoa without going loco."

Every idea notebook I'm sending out for NO BORING STORIES is hand-stamped by me. So you'll be able to tell yours grin your friend's because the wording is slightly crooked in that very certain way? Get yours: bit.ly/noboringstories

Just like slow eating and slow travel, close reading makes every book we read more memorable and meaningful. Whenever I slow down the process of reading and reflecting, I always find myself making connections and savoring the art of children's literature in ways that are hard to do when I’m quickly flipping through the latest titles in the bookstore.

I love that Usborne has so many creative and educational activity books! Check out this 3D mask kit. Kids have fun assembling and imagining and playing with those beautiful masks. What were some of your favorite crafts as a kid?
