New Book Release!

Schoolwide, Inc. has released my latest picture book, WHERE IN THE WORLD ARE YOU?

This concept picture book is rich in photographs and is meant to teach basics of geography and cosmology. It explores the universal truth that that we are all part of the same place in space. In cumulative fashion, the story takes the reader from the outer reaches of the universe to our galaxy to our solar system to our planet, continuing to the reader’s own room.
Way out in space, there is a universe–
an ever-growing universe–
where all of us are living.

Enrollment is now open for my online fall course, INTERMEDIATE PICTURE BOOK WRITING, through the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program. This is one of my favorite courses to teach! We’ll dive into the world of picture books, going beyond the basic craft issues as we investigate this fascinating genre of children’s books. Students will have the multiple opportunities for feedback on their work. The end goal is a completed draft of a picture book.
