Read To Me! Anytime! Anyplace!

An illustration I created in the book Destiny's Gift by Natasha Tarpley is included in the new 2010 Read to Me! calendar featuring artwork by children's book illustrators across the country, depicting cozy images of reading together each month. My illustration is on the September calendar.

The calendar, published by Family Reading Partnership, includes read-aloud tips by Esmé Raji Codell, author of "How to Get Your Child to Love Reading." The mission of Family Reading Partnership is to create a culture of literacy in which all children have early, frequent, and pleasurable experiences with books, together with a loved one, as a special part of everyday family life.
