Meeting Jan Brett

Jan Brett has been my favorite children's' author since before we even had children!!  When I saw she was coming to our area in one of only two stops in Ohio, I jumped at the chance to get to meet her.  We spent all of November studying her books and learning about her artistic style so that we would be ready for the tour stop!

Just a few projects....we used The Mermaid during our Japan study.

Jan Brett has a great Youtube channel with drawing activities.  The girls and I made turnip cakes from her channel.

They really liked these.

We were very excited to get to the Children's Literature Museum to see her!!

And so was everyone else....the rooms were PACKED!!  The girls were able to wiggle up front so that they could see better.

She did a drawing from her new book The Snowy Nap.

Other artwork she had donated to the Mazza Museum in Findlay.

We won a Snowy Nap tote bag.

Meeting Hedgie.

Such a wonderful day!!  We loved meeting Jan Brett!!

  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
