Jane Yolen, Picture Book Author
I have not posted in a while because I honestly have not had the energy! My daughter left to go visit a friend in Missouri for Spring Break! I hope she has a wonderful time.
In the meantime, I am doing a lot of reading. I began reading “Animal Farm” which is pretty great. Both of my kids read it for school, and my husband read it years ago. I think it is amazing and insightful already, and I am only 28 pages in!
I also began painting my drawings for my picture book, Larry the Lonely Leatherback. I am going to try to take pictures of them and put the text with them, then upload it on WordPress and try to make a “book” that can be looked through like it would appear if it was printed on paper.
In the meantime, here are some encouraging words from Jane Yolen. I have yet to check out any of her books from the library, though, because I just learned about her the other day. Enjoy!
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
