Read Across America

Spent some time over at the Westbridge Academy last week to read to the kids as part of “Read Across America”. Westbridge Academy is a New Jersey State Approved Private Special Education School in Bloomfield, NJ for students with emotional, behavioral and learning challenges in grades K-12. Thanks to Tania Miller for organizing the event.

I drew on the chalkboard to show the children how I go about drawing a dog and when the class was over, a sweet boy named Jayden handed me his drawing. I made him sign it, telling him alll great artists sign their work. I just love this. Hanging it on my fridge. :)



Lovey Bunny makes a library TOP 10! Whoo-hoo

My first book got some love from a librarian in Michigan. It is so nice to see that kids are checking my book out. Lovey is like my "Little Engine that Could"; (albeit a bit of a sales mystery) -with two retail seasons in Target, three printings and an upcoming board book version launching later this year. But you have to celebrate all the little milestones. :)
