The Importance of Books Matter Poem and Art

/ February 12, 2020

BOOKS MATTER! I enjoy sharing this poem and what it means to me with children when I give school author visits! They light up

The importance of books is so dear to me.  Seeing a story come alive because of an idea … because of imagination … an author and illustrator collaborating to make a new picture book is just priceless!

The importance of books and children’s picture books is priceless for it can create a lasting memory, impression and life long love of reading!

When we created Unicorn Jazz and as we continue to create the kids favorite with her musical note for a tail, along with her many animal friends it was important to add personality to her friends.  Unicorn Jazz’s cast of animal friends include Woof the Crow, Bee Happy, Billy Bob the Butterfly, Flamingo Asia, Chris the Owl, Sophia the Seal and more!

I share this poem with you to stop and think about your favorite and most cherished picture books as a child, parent, mother, father, grandfather, grandmother, sister, brother, cousin, librarian.

Please share with others.
