Honoring my heritage and ancestors
I'm working this children's book for this class as part of an extended project/series. But this particular book retraces a trip that my kids, mom and I took this summer with my grandma- through the Oley Valley, where our roots are deep. Today, my son and I took the same trip that I am writing the story about and collected some wonderful images for inspiration while I work on the illustrations. Inspired by a deeply personal journey, I hope this book is as magical as it was in reality.
