“So please, oh PLEASE, we beg, we pray, Go throw your TV set away, And in its place you can install, A lovely bookshelf on the wall.”
— Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
And on that bookshelf you can place a book written and illustrated by YOUR child! Here is a wonderful opportunity for your child to be both author and illustrator of their own hand-bound book as they experience the creative process of writing along with a variety of art mediums to illustrate their story. What a great way to instill a lifetime love for reading and art!
