Want to Broaden Your Reading Horizons? Check Out the New Monthly Book Review Feature at Bird Meets Worm!

I'm so pleased to be a part of the new monthly children’s book review feature on illustrator Jane Smith's Bird Meets Worm Blog. Each month a rotating roster of illustrators, authors, and educators will review a book of their choice - each with a focus on diverse themes.

This month's featured book is The Case for Loving, a sensitive non-fiction picture book by husband-and-wife team Selina Alko and Sean Qualls, that tells the story of the Loving family and their fight for interracial marriage.

Click here to read Jane's insightful review, and be sure to check back on the second Wednesday of each month for a new book review.

818 Creates Virtual Art Exhibit - Thursday, June 1

Hope you'll pop over to Instagram tomorrow (Thursday, June 1 at 5pm) to check out the 818 Creates Virtual Art Exhibit. This fun idea was dreamed up by my illustrator pal Kat McD, who decided we all needed a push to get our work onto Instagram!

This is the first of three shows that will explore "Summer" as a theme. We'll post fresh work on June 1st, July 1st and then again on August 1st. Participating artists include Suzy Engelman Block, Diane Browning, Tanya Maiboroda, Kat McD and yours truly!

Be sure to join us Thursday, June 1 at 5pm PST at Instagram #818CreatesSummer. Virtual wine and cheese will be served.
