The highlight of the 2016 CANSCAIP Packaging Your Imagination Conference was meeting keynote speaker Professor Emeritus David Booth of The Ontario Institute for Studies of Education (OISE) of The University of Toronto. He said, my book, “is a perfect pattern book.”
I will be participating in my first Canadian Society of Children’s Authors Illustrators & Performers Conference on Sat., Nov. 19th, 2016 at the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute in Toronto. If you are planning on attending please ASK ME ABOUT Ruby.
In the spring of 2016, a Principal suggested I create a workshop for grade 1 – 3 students and I developed a workshop which focuses on the process of creating a book. The students at Rogers Public School @YRDSB were exposed to original artwork, electronic artwork, print proofs (drafts), press proofs, final products, etc. Students completed worksheets which were assembled in class books and published as e-books on Smashwords.com.The artwork was amazing! Here are the covers of the e-books.
