What an enjoyable evening with friends at Barnes and Noble Bookstore. We went for a book reading and signing by Kevin Henkes who is an American writer and illustrator of children's books. Henkes told the story that he thought he would be an artist until his junior year of high school, when one of his teachers encouraged him in his writing efforts. He discovered that children's books combined both his literary and artistic interests. To date he's written and illustrated some 50 books!
Frankie and I went to the event with one of my sweet friends from church and her precious girls. It was a delightful evening. The kids in the audience giggled in delight at his stories and drawings!
The living, the living—they praise you,
as I am doing today;
parents tell their children
about your faithfulness.
