Magical dust and swirling branches for a little girl's room. Out of well over one hundred murals, I believe this is the first time I've painted licensed characters... that was the most challenging part of the day because there is a fabulous piece of existing art to measure my efforts by. I am only concerned about the thoughts of a four year old critic though and I am sure I'll find out her delight or disappointment tomorrow. Wish me luck!
On another note:
This summer, I am hoping, will be filled with not only lots of relaxing and fun but some education as well. So to make sure that happens, the kid and I have been listening to tween lit on CD.
We have found the most fabulous book that I am enthralled with... it's called Rules by Cynthia Lord. The book is about a 12 year old girl who not only has the challenges of entering her teens but she has the responsibility of helping care for her younger autistic brother. It's funny, lighthearted, heart warming and delightful. I plan on reading it after I hear the entire thing. In fact, I think it just might be the first read for a book club for adults who read children's lit I am forming!
How about you? Do you read children's literature for fun?

Albert, you are brilliant!
I am so grateful for eye opening conversations!
