Slumber Party


Here are more pieces I illustrated for a an English textbook geared towards giving 4th graders more courage to write. They accompany an essay by novelist and poet, Laurel Snyder,  who recounts her experiences as an 8 year old at her first slumber party. At this Halloween sleepover, she had an experience which could have made her feel like a complete outcast. But instead, it turned into a wonderful life-affirming lesson about friendship.

You can view my drawings accompanying an essay by the great Rosa Parks, here.
A special thanks to art director, Carmela Stricklett, 
at Amplify for this really fun opportunity.
