Interview with Jeni Chen, author/illustrator of EMET'S BOX
This is a creative conversation you do NOT want to miss! Not only is Jeni absolutely charming, but she is full of great information and beautiful insights about finding our spark! We talk art, music, writing, teaching, and more. If you've lost your creative spark, if you're a music teacher, artist, art teacher, if you haven't yet found your "element" (Watch the video to see what I mean), this one is for you! I'm pretty sure you'll be blessed! Be sure to leave a comment to be eligible for Jeni's prizes (Yes, plural! There are two prizes! Check out the Giveaway section to see what Jeni is offering! :-))
PB (Picture Book Tasting) EMET'S BOX
What a lovely book! Jeni helps us see the world through Emet's eyes -- at first full of color, zest, vibrance, and LIFE. Then, as he loses touch with his artistic creativity, his world changes to grayscale -- literally and figuratively! When his grandparents give him an art set, he 's reminded of how much he loves art, and rekindles the spark. Once his world is full of color again, he's equipped to help others regain their own zest for life. It's a wonderful book for kids, but it's also a wonderful book for adults! Whether your zest/element/passion is art, music, handcrafts, welding, travel, gardening or something totally different, my wish for you is that you find and maintain your connection to your creativity -- whatever that looks like. This book will inspire you to do just that!
A Little Jam. . .(The Music Kind)
This page is the official space for PBJamz -- multimedia Jamorama celebrating all things PB (picture books) and Jamz (music), although we'll indulge in the other PBJ snacks where appropriate :-). Join us each Thursday for new content connecting picture books and music!
