Inspiring Minds

My illustrator for the cultural series had a lot of fun with some three and four-year-olds recently! Kelsea has always been a pleasure to work with. She puts so much effort into her beautiful illustrations and has made a wonderful difference in the lives of the families that read my series. Thank you Kelsea for sharing my books with these children, introducing them to other countries and cultures, and inspiring their creative minds with information about how you make the characters come to life.

 "I was a guest artist at my sister's Montessori school. I read If You Were Me And Lived In...Australia and If You Were Me And Lived In...Norway to the kids and they loved them! I talked about what it's like being an illustrator and took a few questions from the kids."- Kelsea
