The Ten-Year-Old was lecturing me the other day about how I haven’t posted nearly enough interesting stuff on Caterpickles this summer. Apparently, she has time to read Caterpickles now, and was disappointed to find I haven’t answered her question about which modern instrument evolved from the sackbut yet.
She wanted to know what I’d been doing instead, and when I told her, said, “Mommyo, you should let everyone else know that, too.”
Ok. Here’s what I’ve been doing instead.
That’s right. I’m having a book. It’s about how even artistically inept parents like me can use public art to nurture their children’s love of art and to get them engaged with their community.
If you’re thinking, that’s a weird size for a book cover, you’re right. The cover isn’t finished yet, so this is a peek at one of the proposed interior spreads.
While The Ten-Year-Old has been off at summer camp, I’ve been working like mad to finalize the copy and book design with my design team. We’re almost there. You’ll be the first to know when the book’s finally out later this summer.
In the meantime, thanks for your patience with the intermittent blogging here at Caterpickles Central.
