Spring Fever...

Every year when the tips of those bright yellow daffodils 
begin to bloom I get serious case of spring fever.
Alas, it's begun!

Hello, World! board books

I'm excited to share that the next two books in the Hello, World! series that I'm writing & illustrating for Random House Kids is now out. 
Birds & Backyard Bugs are board books for toddlers that give a colorful, basic but fun introduction to each topic. 

The Hello, World! series was developed by myself & my wonderful editor as a way to share simple concepts about nature & science.  Watching the series grow has been so rewarding! Two new books will be out spring 2018. (Dinosaurs & My Body)  

It is my hope that these books bring families & young readers the same happiness they've provided me with.
Happy Reading!

Vanilla Meringue Cookies

Tried a more sophisticated treat for the 3rd grade Friendship party at school.
These cookies & the passionfruit sparkling water got mixed reviews.
Fun to watch them try new things! (pushing the palate forward...)

Daydreaming about a trip to Paris.  
February is my least favorite month of the year.  
Makes me want to pack my bags & wander the world.

Hello, February!

When I think of February I think of LOVE.
Then I smile because I know spring is just around the corner.
