Last week I had the pleasure of visiting with a group of children at the Lois Bronz Children's Center, in White Plains, NY. I read my book, Sam Bennett's New Shoes, and did a little show and tell about the inspiration behind the story. Then we talked about how an author/illustrator goes about creating a book. The kids were great! They were very attentive and asked lots of good questions. So inspiring!
Afterwards, the kids had a choice of different shoe-related craft projects set up by the folks at Hudson Fusion, a local marketing communication firm who organized the event as part of their creative public service initiative.
All in all, it was a lovely afternoon. Here are some photos:
Shoe prints with paint and paper.
Coloring and decorating different styles of boots & shoes.
