The Time to Create is Now!

As many of you know my first book, Time to Create: Hands On Explorations in Process Art for Young Children, was recently published by Gryphon House. Today I am excited to share that the book is going on tour! Over the next few weeks, Time to Create will be featured on a series of blogs from all around the world, which means you’ll have the opportunity to peek inside the covers to see what the children of my fellow bloggers (and their mamas) think of the creative projects and ideas that lie within. The tour will feature reviews, activity ideas and even an interview or two with little old me.

It all kicks off today with a feature on my good friend Kate’s blog – Picklebums. Be sure to check out what she and her son, Morgan, have to say about Time to Create.

With thanks to each of the following fabulous bloggers for their support of Time to Create. Keep an eye on their blogs for upcoming stops along the tour (if you are not already familiar with them, these are all great blogs to follow), I’ll update the links here as their posts go live…
