Inspired by the #kidlitwomen articles and actions during Women’s History Month, I’ve been doodling my Tiger into images from picture books illustrated by a few of my favorites. You can check out the first half (1/2) HERE, or on Instagram, where I also post ‘image packets’ daily from other female illustrators I admire in children’s literature.

I like this book because: I found this book of mine just last week I was sifting through boxes in my parent’s basement for things I could squeeze into my carry-on and take back to Colorado. I know I liked this book as a child because of it’s size (4″x6.5″), but also for the ink drawings that captured my heart: the character with their adorable chubby-cheeked mouthless faces dressed in the turn-of-the-century fashion, which I tried so hard to emulate. And inside were tucked a few of those attempts made when I was 7 or 8 yrs old.

Resources/activities: for any holiday one could make their own collection of traditions and what the holiday means for themselves and for their families.
