Charles M. Burke Elementary
School Illustrator Visit

Karen Ritter, the librarian at Charles Burke, invited me to present my newest book The Little “Read” Hen written by Dianne de Las Casas. I gave a presentation about what it takes to become an illustrator and the process that an illustrator goes through to create a picture book. After the presentation, each student created their own collage of a hen. I found it very fitting the hen be created from newspaper, because in the story she is well “Read.” 🙂
I had a wonderful time. Thank you for inviting me to your school to talk about what I love – creating illustrations and sharing with kids my process.
