Children's Book Fest
On Saturday, May 9th, I gave a presentation to
the children that earned M.I.R.A awards ( nominated by
their schools in Seneca Falls area as most improved reader).
The mayor of Seneca Falls, Diana Smith, passed out the
awards. I shared the process of creating my picture books
and showed examples of my illustrations. After the award
ceremony, I engaged the kids in flamingo crafts.
Every student who earned awards received a copy of my
book, Marco Flamingo, and a copy of Marley and Me
(the theme of this years festival). There were other events
as well. Jill Fogel engaged the kids in musical fun, there
was a book basket drawing (look at these magnificent
baskets below), and donated books were available for
Thank you, Jackie Grey (director), for inviting me.
I was very impressed with the programs and events
hosted by this library---very creative and dedicated staff.
