Rebecca and I met on the first day of second grade under the wise supervision of our teacher, Kateri Sullivan. Our friendship was off to a rocky start over a misunderstanding that was quickly resolved (sorry again, Rebecca), and we have been friends ever since! Phew.
Our teacher was a wonderful, creative woman who taught us how to make things like latch-hook rugs and encouraged us to paint along with Bob Ross. I would truly not know a lick about Bob Ross and his happy little trees if it wasn’t for our teacher. We even, gasp, illustrated our own books in her class.
And here we are, on this poetic occasion, to celebrate Rebecca’s ongoing journey as a maker and book illustrator.
My five year old says of the book: “I like the pictures. Good drawings!” And I have to agree. As you can see, the colors and richness of the painting is stunning and quite sophisticated.
