March 15, 20-11 – My recently-released book “Birdyjosh and Birdylu, a Paper Birds’ Story” is a lovely tale of two origami-style paper birds and their struggles to survive amidst an unknown environment. The unusual, enlivened birds have been depicted in colorful garments to suit the scene or the view, in an unusual whimsical fashion. Parents and teachers will delight in reading this sweet story to the little ones, emphasizing the birds’ purpose and commitment, while the youngsters will be able to digest the contents on their own. After creating a series of paintings with the moon looking down unto realistic themes with the birds as the center of attention, I realized the artwork told a story and so the writing began.
Aside from the entertaining and humane narrative of the book, the last two pages were dedicated to love and caring of all animals, domesticated and wild. So much is known about the subject and so much love is professed to animals already, but the recap of some of the goodness animals do for humans may put everything in perspective in the children’s minds.
