Special Guests from Canada at the New Children's Museum reading today

My readings for the Toddler Program at the New Children's Museum 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!

"Spatter and Spark" behind the scenes: take 03

Mama Crow's house had few but important restraints: it should have a wide window from where you can see Spatter and Spark bouncing outside. The window would use most of the real state available in the picture, but I still needed to fit in Mama and Hubert. To add character to their cozy house, I included some decorations and furnishing in tune with a crow's taste: shiny and colorful!
