      I'm taking a little break from writing at this time, but I have a couple of books I'm supposed to do in the next year or two. One will be (title unknown) my "favorite art ideas" with essays and stories about real kids and real experiences with the projects, plus the activities themselves with materials and directions, etc. I am currently spending more time in classrooms being motivated by children. They are what makes my artistic clock tick.

      Sorry the list in the last email turned out to be so BIG...the font I used was much smaller and there were no spaces between lines. It kind of grew when it went through the email listserv.  :o)

      I hope that if you need some art ideas to go with children's books, you will go to my website -- and go to "Free Activities", and then click on anything that says "Storybook Art". There are quite a few samples from the book to share for anyone who is interested.

      Thank you for your kind words!!
      PS My favorite has always been "Scribble Art", but my new favorite is "Great American Artists for Kids"...again, free pages from it on my website. Lots of them!
