A different kind of bear book…

I went to a book launch at Christianne’s Lyceum on Saturday. I took both kids and we made great paper bag drawings of Jack the Bear, Christina Leist’s newest creation.

The book is absolutely lovely. It has a wonderful story about how to change the world one small smile at a time, and the illustrations are completely unique. (I had a conversation with Kari-Lynn Winters last week about developing visual literacy in my children, so we’re paying extra attention to illustrations these days!)

The launch itself was a testament to Christina’s creative abilities. There was music, a reading, art projects, leaf rubbings, bear-shaped cookies, and even honey at the door to take home.

Congratulations on a gorgeous book, Christina!
