Penny Schnee-Bosch: Author, Someday...
||As a veteran early childhood
teacher, I have enjoyed the opportunity to read a host of books to many
children of different backgrounds. From the public schools of Harlem to
the private schools of the Upper West Side, I have found that all children
like to see themselves in a story. With this in mind, 'Someday...' was
created to help children develop a strong sense of themselves and their
world - and to have fun doing it!
'Someday...' lends itself to many follow-up activities and discussions.
It is rich in language, including lots of lovely alliteration. 'Someday...'
encourages children to think about what they would like to be when they
grow up while emphasizing how special they are today. It inspires a
child's imagination to soar and not be bound by gender or any other
David Bosch: Illustrator, Someday...
David studied painting & drawing at the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston. His influences range from German expressionism to Tibetan thanka painting to silly cartoons. Someday was drawn with oil pastels and manipulated with household items like paper clips, spoons and chopsticks to create different textures and effects. As a follow-up to enjoying Someday... your child can have fun experimenting with these materials its great for fine motor development, too!
