Love this reading of NAKED! by Avoca students Lindsay and Laila


My favorite review of NAKED! so far

Thanks to Courtney Makishima for sharing this on Twitter!


Video: Sketching NAKED! In 30 Seconds (plus free illustration workshops for students during my book tour later this month)

Simon & Schuster Children's is sending me on my very first book tour! Would your school like a free visit? Details here.

I can customize my talk to the needs of your school and students. Would you like me to offer tips on becoming a children's book illustrator and give an illustration workshop to aspiring young illustrators? Or talk about the process of creating a picture book? Please let me know.

And don't forget to download my free Core-compatible Teacher's Classroom Guide to NAKED!, written by educational consultant Marcie Colleen.
