Visiting Young Readers

On Friday I visited a 3rd grade class at a local school with author Jaimie M. Engle. We talked about Jaimie’s upcoming book, her writing, my illustration, and our collaboration process. So much fun, and the students were a delight!

greenmeadow42613I showed the class several of my preliminary drawings which led up to the final cover. I showed them the final cover watercolor as the final image in my series and they really enjoyed the Big Reveal.

After our presentation I showed them how to draw the faces of the two main characters in the book and they drew along as I did. They had such thoughtful questions and so much talent! I was as impressed with them as they seemed to be with Jaimie and me.

Special thanks to Jaimie Engle and Ms. Kane for inviting me!

  1. Wonderful recap, Deb. I’ll be posting in a few days as well. So happy you were there, as were the kids. I wish I could have recorded their “oohs” on the Big Reveal!
