The Summer reading list is out! I was reminded of a few of the books that I am so grateful to be associated with, by either design or having illustrated.
I had so much fun illustrating a wonderful new book, The Amazing Journey of Clarence Carrot by nutritionist, Chris Mahoney. This is a new educational program to promote taste development and healthy food habits in young children in a simple, fun and playful way. Teaching about nutrition to young children, ages 3 to 7, is the key to developing healthy eating habits. This program offers parents, teachers and caregivers, easy-to-understand information on nutrition. To purchase http://loulouswhimsicals.com/contact also available on Amazon.
ChristopherWren, The Avian Architect , written by Tina Skinner, illustrated by Moi! I am so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to illustrate “…this delightful story that chronicles the adventures of a wren as he seeks to build the ultimate birdhouse. Learn about architectural style coast to coast in a childishly charming book that is a blast of color from front to back. Expose your child to concepts of classic design as diverse as Georgian Revival and log cabin, Art Deco and Arts & Crafts. Children will see their environment, whether their own home or the town they are driving through, in a whole new light. This is a book you’ll want to read aloud together time and again. Early reader–ages 5-8.” Available on Amazon.
Excited to see that my Alice in wonderland bedroom made the cover of Showhouses 1 A Decorators Tour!! This beautifully designed book holds the recent works of talented interior designers at twenty Decorator Showhouse events around the country revealed in 330 striking color photos. Filled with a ton of inspiration for your home! Available on Amazon.
I was asked to paint an interior of one of these beauties, A nautical theme including a painted rope border and around the windows and a checkerboard floor.. These little darlings got me to thinking that by adding a little plumbing etc they’d be a great “tiny home!” Thought you might like to know that for the do-it-yourselfers there are plans and blueprints with half a dozen of the nation’s leading manufacturers profiled, with both inside and outside images of their creations. The fanciful works pictured vary from the wildly colorful to the scale-model imitations of Mom and Dad’s home. This is a dream book for parents, grandparents, and their little pals to pour over, with more than 200 beautiful images to spark imaginations! Available on Amazon.
