Nancy Cote’s Book Signing!

This past Monday I had the pleasure of attending Nancy Cote’s book signing at Barnes and Nobles in Dartmouth. The book that she read, Jackson’s Blanket, was written and illustrated by her. It is a wonderful book about a boy who doesn’t want to give up his blanket even though his parents think it’s time. The story’s turning point is when the boy finds a homeless kitten and he and his family adopt it. The boy gives his blanket to the kitten to keep her warm. This book has a very nice message about adopting homeless animals as well as showing the little boy growing up and able to let go of his blanket. I highly recommend you check out this book!

A New Illustration!

I am very excited to say that I am going to Whispering Pines this March! A couple of my friends; Liz Dubois and Barbara Johansennewman have gone several times and tell me how fun and inspirational the weekend is. I can’t wait to experience it for myself! The illustration above is one of the final drawings that is in the dummy that I have submitted for the retreat. The text is excluded.
