The Book Stop: Part 4

The sign is up and we are putting in the books:



Because our Community Book Stop is finished! Ta-dah!



We did it!
me & two members of the Diversity Committee-- we're missing at a bunch of others!

And it's already being used! People are borrowing the books and sharing their thoughts:





Just as we hoped! I hope the Book Stop continues, and I hope, maybe, you might consider making one of your own, too.

The Book Stop: Part 3

It seems like the Book Stop was slow going, but it wasn't really. Once we got it going, we were able to pull it together pretty fast!  One of the parents began building the shelves:


And another designed the the sign:



which we decided to make even more personal. At the school picnic, we had all the kids sign their names on the back:




A nice little memory for posterity!


Now, we just need to hand it over the finished Book Stop...

the art critic



About a year ago, when Rain Dragon realized what I did for a living, she asked if I would put her into a book. Little did she know, I had already been planning it for a while! Yes, she is the "star" in my upcoming picturebook, "A Big Mooncake for Little Star," the art of which I have just recently finished! The book doesn't come out until August 2018 (more than a year away!) but according to Rain Dragon, that is just fine because the art still needs work. Apparently, I forgot to make her into duck.
