Update On My Writing:

Update On My Writing:

June 20, 2016

Dear WinkWorld Readers,

As some of you know, I am working on a new book about literacy stories. A few months ago, I gave you a little glimpse,

Power UP: Book at a Glance

Power UP: Book-At-A-Glance

This is an update, in which I want to share a peak into each chapter and an image which will be used.  My publisher, Libraries Unlimited, normally does not use any images, but they have agreed in this case.  I keep reading that the algorithms of social media point to the direction of communication through more and more visuals.   I must admit that an image often deepens my understanding of a concept.

All images, which I share were created by Katie Knox.  I feel so fortunate to have found her, as I am delighted with the spirit I find in her drawings of children. You will note that each image will carry a ‘Watermark,’  on my webpages, but, of course, we will remove these in the book.

The titles of the planned chapters are:

Chapter 1

Loving That Literacy

Chapter 2

Loving Those Stories

Chapter 3

Animals and the Alphabet

Chapter 4

Of Stories and Standards

Chapter 5

Of Immigrants and Imagination

Chapter 6

Into the Cloud

Chapter 7

Patience and Fortitude: The Future


I am posting here one of Katie’s images.  In the coming days, I will post an overview of each chapter and more images.

  • I am Katie’s dad and could not be more proud of her artistic work and her career path leaving soon to teach English to Japanese kids as picked by the JET program. Thanks for featuring her artwork here.

      Welcome Katie’s Dad, Walter! You deserve to be very proud of your daughter. She is so talented, and she is a joy to collaborate with; we will all be watching her career path with keen interest.
