What Parker’s Reading

Many a morning Parker wakes up and the very first thought he shares is: Book.

Yeah. That is one sign he is never stingy with.

Two of his favorites right now include:

by Lois Ehlert. Actually, I love anything that Lois Ehlert does. Her books not only foster imaginations, but vocabulary too, as her art utilizes pictures of objects found in everyday living.

She even includes a popcorn ‘snowball’ recipe. You know, for kids who eat. sigh.

A lesson in the technique of scratchboard illustration would be excellent for older children.


Until Parker is healthy enough to meet the world head on, I am passionate about bringing the world to him. Books are an excellent way to meet my goal.
