Color Me Purple is a narrative book for children ages 8-12, although it could be of interest to younger and older children as well. With 18 text boxes that explain the concepts and theories behind the story for mature readers, it could provide helpful information to teachers, parents, and other caretakers of the young readers.
The book contains approximately 20 full-color illustrations by Madison artist Donna Parker. Together, as author and illustrator, Donna and I are excited at the prospects of sharing a story that emphasizes that children from all cultures and ethnic backgrounds are talented in many different ways. The story encourages readers to think about their own talents.
Grandma Says It’s Good to Be Smart is a colorful picture book for children, ages 0-7, with whimsical illustrations by Brenda Palmer. Grandma says it’s good to love learning, reading, exploring ideas, and finding out about the world around you. The underlying message is that smart is cool. Reading and talking about curiosity, talent, and life-long learning are ways to help children feel good about themselves and their developing skills. This book helps parents, grandparents, and teachers do just that! The full page illustration of flying horses is a favorite among adults – and children. It represents all that children can dream big and fly as high as they dream.
