Hi. I’m a short listed author, who loves making kids books. But they take a writer like me about 3 years to get on the shelf. That’s too long. The world is too full of stories and ideas! So, as an ode to my baby daughter, Cielo, (Spanish for Sky and Heaven), I am going to write 365 children’s books in 365 days, give each one art direction, and put them on the internet for free.
Because it’s fun. Because I love stories. Because it’s a challenge. Because I like to give. Because life is short. Because I can!
If you are a parent who wants to draw a children’s book for your kid, use one of these! If you are an art teacher who wants to teach your students storytelling, bango! If you are a graphic designer or illustrator, who wants to have a crack, go for it! IF YOU ARE SIMPLY A KID WHO WANTS SOMETHING FUN TO READ, OR DRAW…! HOORAY!
Many will work fine as bedtime stories simply read out loud.
Stories lead to stories, imagination inspires imagination! Through imagination we build a better world. I hope this ode, done out of love, brings you joy!
