On April 3, I was the guest illustrator at the JCC Newton's preschool All About Books event (and also, ahem, pajama party).
We're Going on a Bear Hunt, The Book with No Pictures and Pete the Cat (among others).
With the help of my four year old daughter, I did a presentation for the 2-5 year olds on creating a character (they wanted him/her to be silly) and then the kids helped me write the story as I drew in front of them.
We ended up with a one eyed silly monster/king named Yuni with a uni-brow and spots who had three arms and travelled around on a spring and a wheel.
Once I was finished, a number of kids continued the drawings I had stuck to the walls while others made their own stories and turned them into books for me to see.
It was a fantastic event!
