Story time and drawing demo at Auntie’s

Author Jeni Leidenfrost and I had a blast during Story Time at Auntie’s Bookstore in Spokane on Saturday. Our time started off with Jeni reading Little Mouse Finds a Friend to a wide age range of readers. Jeni also introduced the Braille versions* of Little Mouse and some of the young readers got a chance to touch and see what Braille feels like under their fingers.

After the reading, we passed out paper, crayons, and clipboards provided by Auntie’s. Then I began to demonstrate how to draw Little Mouse with several easy shapes, like a lemon (for his head) and a moon (for his mouth). The finished drawing went to one of the readers and I drew another one for a little pre-reader who came to Story Time for her birthday treat.

It was such a delightful morning. Auntie’s is a wonderful place for children to learn to love reading!

*The full Braille version, with descriptions of the illustrations, are now available on Amazon!
