A is for pencil

I'm working on a book project that is based upon a school program I gave for many years.  Back then I called it "visual thinking".  It was a way to get children to look at objects creatively and in this instance to encourage the innate cartoonist that dwells inside every kid.

The concept is pretty simple:  Take a letter of the alphabet and make a picture out of it.

Lower case h is a little girl reaching for a star

Its sort of a subversive alphabet book in which A is for pencil and C is for salt shaker.  I know that kids will enjoy it, they certainly did when we were doing this together in classrooms.

Its written in rhyme, no less.

What does a lower case q suggest to you?

 yeah, me too.

Stay tuned!
