My sweet little nephew Deanie, the one who at 3 months old helped me write both SillyFace and The Little Book of Laughing, is now 2 years old and reading beautifully from SillyFace! (I think he’s a pretty good performer too!) Too cute. Oh My Goodness~~ Once again, to purchase your own copy, please visit www.msAnnaArt.com
I was super surprised to get these in my inbox this afternoon; very nice photos of my book compliments from Print Ninja. While the 25 airmail copies were sold during the October artwalk almost immediately, I do have 475 more copies (350 of which are still available) on their way that should be here any day now. Copies are available at msAnnaArt.com The kids were having a great time with this book during the DIY Trunk Show. I am really looking forward to fairs with facepainting and copies of this book.
Walking with Heart is no easy thing, it becomes easy to trip over things,
To knock, to bop, to tip to spill,
It’s never been easy, it’s not easy still,
But each time Lovey stumbled, her mom chimed, “No big deal.”
“As you know Lovey, as I’ve said from the start,
It’s very important to learn to Walk with Heart.”
And so outside Lovey went, into the great unknown,
Her heart wide open, her new birdfeet shown,
With every step, spaced not far apart,
Imprinted was left, little birdfeet with a heart,
And how little Lovey loved walking up the street,
Because everywhere she went, she printed birdfeet.
– from Lovey and the Grouch
A Mother Heron Story by Ms Anna
Lovey and the Grouch is a story about a young Possum named Lovey who receives a pair of birdfeet for her Birthday. Because of they way they print hearts when Lovey walks, she calls them the “walk with hearts.” But what happens when Lovey’s new birdfeet are stollen during show and tell in Ms Mayhem’s class? Will Lovey blame her enemy the Grouch? Will she go home and cry and plot revenge? Stay tuned and see! This and many other Mother Heron stories by Ms Anna are in the works.
