Honoré here: Last Sunday's ( Sunday, Nov 9) edition of the Washington Post's Book World caught my attention: "Calling All Kids – Book World invites young artists (ages 5-12) to submit their original, colorful works of art. The winning entry will be used as the cover of a forthcoming issue devoted to children's literature and the winner will receive a bag full of books."
Subject of the art work:? The pleasures of reading!
Since I don't technically qualify as a kid any longer, I immediately thought that my seven-year old niece would be interested… and then I started thinking, uhmm, what would I draw, paint or color to show the pleasures reading brings me? Haven't picked up a pencil, crayon or paintbrush yet but I am thinkin.' And I plan to create several works of art right in my journal. The perfect place. I encourage you to join me in creating your work of art in your journal. And who knows, down the road, we may even feature our colorful pictures on the blog. Wouldn't that be fun!
