And this Life Cycle Chart with Claudia




One of the wonderful benefits of making picture books is spending time with young readers. I have so enjoyed watching their creative energy ignite and hearing how it continues on after my visit. What a thrill to see halls and bulletin boards plastered with interpretations of my books, too!


I am currently booking full and half day school visits for the 2019-20 school year. My companion Teacher's Guide for Claudia & Moth is now available to download. Throughout the book there are undertones about positive outlook, art, change of season, life cycle, and kindness to earth’s creatures. My Teacher’s Guide will delve into these topics across many academic platforms through lessons and activities which are Common Core compliant. 


I would love to see you this school year, please contact me to schedule a visit.
