"Education without art is like an airplane without
wings." President of Hampshire College, 2003
I enjoy speaking to children at schools and speaking to teachers and librarians
at workshops and conferences.
When I go to schools, I give two 45 minute talks which can be geared for
grades K-12. I especially enjoy working with the art teacher and looking
at student's work. I describe in detail how I make my books from the first
emotional connection to the story to the last line of the page. My hope
is that children will be encouraged to express themselves with their drawing
and writing, and to have the unique satisfaction that art can bring.
