It was wonderful to have an opportunity to rub elbows with outstanding children’s book writers and illustrators this past weekend. The SCBWI events never disappoint and in fact leave you with an uplifted writing spirit. I was fortunate to sell my book during the Members Book Sale along side Jennifer J. Chow, author of Dragonfly Dreams and A.E. Conran, author of The Lost Celt. Both ladies were supportive and entertaining. Listening to them providing insights into their books as they engaged with passer-bys was exciting and made me happy to be amongst writers who believe in their work and share it with pride.
Look At Me, Look At Me-Can You Guess My Specialty? allows children to use their natural powers of observation to recognize patterns that animals share such as master jumpers having long, powerful hind legs and master predators having all sharp teeth.
The illustrations by Lori Ann Levy-Holm beautifully provide the visuals for the characteristics and patterns of 36 animals.
Lions are a featured animal in my first book, Look At Me, Look At Me – Can You Guess My Specialty? The extraordinary physical features of lions stand out and when matched with their empowering spirit, they are true master of their domain as hunters and king of beasts.
