I love picture books. I love kids. And, I especially love kids who love picture books. Feel free to give a hug for me to any small person you may know who fits this description.
Here is my daughter with a friend of hers when they were 4 years old. It wasn't too long ago, but long enough to grow out of those lovely dress up outfits given to us by our dear Mèmè. As Caitlyn is learning to read on her own I know that our picture book era is beginning to draw to a close. I'm excited for her to jump into the world of literature in a whole new way, and I'm savoring this precious time we have left with picture books.
For me, 8 years of reading about a thousand picture books to both of my children has been quite a tutorial. I've become a sincere fan of the genre.
Now...to making my own!
"Reading Buddies" is 4 x 6 inches, in watercolor.
