Festive February at Luciana Illustration's headquarters! In a bookstore near you or online, "Ten Playful Tigers" is out: written by Betty Schwartz and Lynn Seresin, published by Capstone Young Readers, it's my first novelty book!
"Who can resist fuzzy tigers? With this sturdy touch-and-feel book, young
fingers can poke and prod and count along as one little tiger turns
into ten playful tigers (and their mama!). Then when you're done, count
the butterflies back to one!"

Always a good time at one of my favorites story time venues! It was a great turn-out, a total of 66 toddler/preschoolers/parents today! I read Colorosaurus, Countasaurus and Shapeasaurus with the help of some very bright kids, and then we moved to our art making session. Favorite coloring technique of the day, by a cute preschooler named Amayah: "making gum" - just jam those crayons on the paper as hard as you can, and the colorful-waxy-dots will be "gum". Artist kids never cease to amaze me! Special guests: Tessa and her grandparents, and Ana and her cute Valentina!

Sample-happy week at Luciana Illustration's headquarters! Fresh from the mail box: my first appearance at Ladybug Mag - art cover for the September issue!
Where did summer go? We are all super excited to go back to school at Luciana Illustration's headquarters! I worked on over a hundred illustrated activity cards for McGraw-Hill Everyday Mathematics last year, and I just got samples in the mail! These cards will be used by second-graders all over the country. It was a long but rewarding project with the always great-to-work with designer team at McGraw-Hill!

www.thinkplaycreate.org are always fun, but today it was thrice-special! After reading I set up the art-making time, and this adorable family stood out because their 3 year-old boy is ambidextrous and was coloring with both hands - at the same time! He was so excited that he couldn't decide which hand to choose, so he went with both! Then the lovely mom told me that they actually have my whole Dino book series at their home - which is in Calgary, Canada, where I lived as a teenager! It was so lovely to meet them all, they made a very rewarding reading even more special!
