Kelly and I have been working on our next book, Sarah the Star and I am in the sketching stage of my illustrations.
Today, I was working on drawing of a lead character, Mark, set in a library, researching.
*What do you think the Dewey Decimal section, in this image, is about?
The sketch brought on memories of my public library, growing up in Eastern Tennessee. Oh, I can remember the library book smell. I borrowed so many Dr. Suess books. I read and reread Where the Sidewalk Ends. I poured over the arts and crafts books. I checked out music books to practice my piano with. My brother and I read all the Cam Janssen and the Mystery of the ...... books we could get our hands on. I read my first YA novel there, A Gift of Magic, about a little girl discovering her magical powers, inherited by her grandmother.
Later on, I started volunteering in the children's library. The librarians recognized my artistic talent and let me work on the window displays. I could go on, but my point is, what a wonderful experience reading can be for children! Libraries are a great place for your child to explore their own personal interests. Support your local libraries!
Here is a picture of my old public library. I can't believe they still have those awesome chairs and tables!

"Oh Frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!" is what i scream out in my head when a day like this comes! The quote is from my favorite Lewis Carroll poem, "Jabberwocky".
Evie and Knox Stories is excited today because we are celebrating the release of our new Man in the Moon Video! You can watch the video here. It is about 2 little sisters reading a bedtime story to eachother. At the end, they are too tired to read and their loving dad picks up the last paragraph of the story. Throughout the video, you can see closeups of the illustrations with some animation in special places!
The adorable little voices reading to eachother will melt your heart.
We have many thanks to shout out for the making of this video. Kelly and David Silverman, from Cake Baby Productions, worked very hard in producing, directing and acting in the movie. Timothy Glover did the videography and color correction. Skylar and Ariel Jones are the sweet sibling actors. I tried my hand a animation. It was a labor of love and we hope you enjoy the result as much as we do! Thank you for stopping by!
