Dear Reader:

I've always loved being in a museum and spending hours absorbed in works of art and believe art should be experienced from the heart of the observer. How does it make us feel inside? My passion for creativity and that of my own children inspired this story of connecting with art through reactions and emotions.  I think of art as a collaboration between the artist and observer and feel the amazing art in THE MUSEUM, created by award-winning Peter H Reynolds, is an ideal collaboration of text and art between the two of us (hope you agree!).

Follow the journey of a girl as she travels through an art museum and see how art makes her feel and then notice your own reaction.  Are you inspired to fill an empty canvas?  We all have a museum inside...we just need to tap into it and let it takes us somewhere. 

Email me at for a chance to win a free autographed copy of THE MUSEUM. I'd love to talk about self-expression, movement and creativity with readers, booksellers teachers and librarians.  

Visit my website at for fun activities for kids, parents, and educators as well as great links to creative websites.  

Here's hoping you're as inspired by THE MUSEUM as I am when in a museum.
