CurriculumConnections Workshops




“Encouraged by all the posts about conferences and literacy days, I’m attending a Program,  From Creative Process to Curriculum Connections, sponsored by scbwi and Lesley University.  Several authors and illustrators are sharing their thoughts about writing and illustrating. There’s a great site with handouts and thought provoking guides at this web site  

Among the titles:

October Mourning

Courage Has No Colors

Who Says Women Can’t be Doctors

Colorful Dreamer

Monsieur Marceau

The Universe of Fair ( string theory for kids!)

The Red Thread Sisters

Spike: The Mixed Up Monster

The program is at the Eric Carle Museum in Amherst. The museum is small, but many of Carle’s illustrations are displayed, and some of his materials. Currently there are sketches and final illustrations by Charlotte’s Web illustrator, Garth Williams. The museum hosts an incredible book store with picture books by many, many authors, writing books, journals, and lots of Eric Carle fun things. An art room is open for young artists to make and take creations of their own and a small library is open for reading aloud. Lots of families are here enjoying the fun.  If you’re in the area, it’s a great place to visit. !
