As part of my appearance at the Sheboygan Children’s Book Festival, I did a workshop at Bookworm Gardens. We walked through the gardens gathering inspiration then went back to the fairytale-inspired cottage to turn our inspiration into pictures and stories. It was a very windy day, so I wondered what effect the wind would have on all those cows in Wisconsin.
Everyone from the principal to the custodian wore matching t-shirts for our author event at Kildeer school on May 2nd. Here’s a link to see more photos. Thanks to Amy Krouse Rosenthal for the t-shirt concept, and to Michelle Schumer for putting the day together!
I recently spent three wonderful days with the elementary school kids in Stoughton, Wisconsin. We talked about art, books, pirates, sharks and trains. Then we wrote some silly stories together (more about this later). Click here to see the article.
Despite appearances to the contrary, I wasn’t crabby, just squinting in the sun. Click for some blog coverage.
I’ll be here on Saturday, Sept. 11, from 12:30-1pm. Come see some great authors, illustrators and musicians, plus the best playground in the world!
