Reading aloud is the best advertisement because it works. It allows a child to sample the delights of reading and conditions him to believe that reading is a pleasureful experience, not a painful or boring one.”—Jim Trelease

Don’t forget to read the picture books in all the character voices. When I was a kid, that’s what I liked the best. Make every book special for your children.

If you are thinking about writing your own picture book for children and will be needing illustrations, contact me. I love to talk pictures books with self-publishing authors.

    • Yes, I have illustrated nine books for other authors. All of them would be a great fun read. One of the picturebooks books I did with a good friend of mine, Donna Warwick. It’s called “There’s a Mouse on My Head! I have written about five books myself but they are all out on submission right now, none of them published at this time. For Children’s Book Week, I am reading to a group of preschoolers in all the funny voices, of course. I love reading books with a lot of drama and funny characters.

      • This sounds wonderful. I wish I had the courage to read out loud. Never did like it. It’s great you are helping others with art work. That is what i love about the Author world. Good luck with your submissions.
